Does anyone know a treatment for the black skin that comes from severe frostbite?


I got frostbite a year ago, and the side of my finger is blackened. What can i do?
----------

The "black skin" from frostbite is necrotic tissue, (dead tissue) and it has to be "surgically" removed to avoid spreading and infection. It may or may not require amputation of the entire finger, depending on the severity. It can't simply be "scrapped off."  (+ info)

The lightest shade means it's very unlikely, the middle shade means heightened chance, and the dark red one means get inside and have a cup of coffee.
