Frostbite is a serious tissue destroying disorder. It is something that is not often anticipated in relatively mild winter temperatures. The expert doctors of Advanced Podiatry encourage everyone to stay alert and take precautions to avoid the unnecessary distress of frostbite.
 
When you are out in the cold, your body works hard to stay warm by altering blood flow toward your heart and lungs. This leaves your extremities – arms, legs, and feet – vulnerable to cold injury, especially toes and fingers. Depending on the severity of the exposure, frostbite can affect the skin or underlying tissue. In most cases, the area becomes numb and feels frozen. Skin will appear waxy, white, or grayish. 
 
If you are concerned about any exposure to cold, please call one of our Advanced Podiatry offices immediately to be evaluated and treated by one of our expert podiatrists.
 
Treatment may involve rewarming, medication, wound care, surgery, and various therapies, depending on the severity of the injury.
 
If in doubt, do not hesitate to call to be evaluated by one of our expert podiatrists at Advanced Podiatry of Manhasset, Huntington, Plainview, or Maspeth.
