Frostbite??

I have been home from Iowa now for 2 days. I hunted in temps down to -4 with windchills down to - 17. I never got overly cold and felt I was well dressed. My problem is my fingers are still numb. The ends of them. Anyone ever had this. Will feeling come back.

Re: Frostbite??

Sounds like frostnip to me. Could be damage to just the epidermis, if that's the case it will go away in a couple days. If they start to blister up, it's more than likely to be a little more severe and is known as superficial frostbite, where the damage has occured below the epidermis and affected the dermis layers. If they start to blister, I would call your PCP and have him look and determine if they are frostbitten. For those folks who are diabetic, it can be a problem.
