Frostbite is no joking matter. Sure, we can all make jokes about Elsa freezing Anna solid in Frozen (yeah, Baby Gearist wanted to make sure they were mentioned) but in all seriousness, frostbite is relatively easy to prevent in most cases and if you know what to look for, prevention is just a few steps away.
In this installment of ASK GEARIST we get into the diagnosis and symptoms of the three stages of frostbite, how to treat it if you do wind up crossing the line and what you can do to prevent it.
