Expert Talks Frostbite Prevention
If you have been feeling like your face, nose or fingers have been getting cold, chilled or numb, experts want you to be aware of frostbite.
With the temperatures being so low, frostbite is a major issue emergency rooms are looking out for right now.
Dr. Scott Wolff, Emergency Physician at St. Luke’s says, ” The most important thing is for people to be aware of the conditions, to dress appropriately, and to watch out for those around us. Especially those who might be disadvantaged, homeless, intoxicated.”
If you are stepping outside or engaging in winter activities, the best way to avoid getting frostbite is to dress appropriately.
