Caption: Frostbitten fingers. Tips of fingers that have suffered from frostbite. Frostbite causes damage to body tissues by the formation of ice crystals during freezing. The fingers, toes and the face are most often affected. Frostbite is classified by degrees in the same manner as burns. Third degree frostbite affects tissues underlying the skin, as here. Treatment is by gently warming the frostbitten parts in tepid water. These fingers have been warmed from the frozen state, but the tips of the fingers could not be saved. Precautions are required against bacterial infection, to which frostbitten skin is susceptible.
