Frostbite damages body tissues in much the same way that burns do. In fact, frostbite injuries and burn injuries can look very similar, and frostbite can be categorized in the same way.
Frostbite can happen in many different ways, which is readily apparent from the different pictures. Whether climbing Mount Everest or icing an injury just a little too long, frostbite is an injury likely to leave its mark forever.
You can't properly treat frostbite unless you recognize it. Hopefully, these pictures will give you an idea how frostbite might look.
