Frost bite is damage to the skin and other tissue caused by freezing. Frost bite is caused by exposure to temperatures well below freezing. Dry conditions contribute to frost bite damage.
Frostbite is, literally, frozen body tissue — usually skin but sometimes deeper — and must be handled carefully to prevent permanent tissue damage.
Frostbite is characterized by white, waxy skin that feels numb and hard. It requires immediate emergency medical attention.
