Frostbite is a medical condition resulting from tissue injury caused by freezing. It most commonly affects the extremities, such as fingers, toes, ears, nose, and cheeks.

Signs and symptoms of frostbite vary depending on how severe the injury is. In less severe cases, there may only be a tingling or numbing sensation. In more severe cases, frostbite can cause extensive tissue damage with blistering and skin peeling. In extreme cases, frostbite can lead to amputation of affected tissues.
