Frostbite in Children

Dec. 8, 2014 - Frostbite is damage to the skin from freezing and is due to prolonged exposure to cold temperatures, usually below 32 F (0 C). It occurs when ice crystals form on the skin or deeper tissue. The most common sites for frostbite are the fingers, toes, ears, nose, chin, and cheeks. The severity depends on several factors including temperature, length of exposure, wind-chill factor, dampness, and type of clothing worn. Children are more prone to frostbite than adults because they lose heat from their skin faster and do not want to come inside when having fun playing outdoors.
