Myth of the Month – Rewarming Frostbitten Body Parts

MYTH: Rubbing a frostbitten body part is helpful for re-warming.

FACT: Do not rub, massage, or touch the frostbitten part at all.  Rapid rewarming in water temperatures of 104F – 106F is recommended if there is no chance the part will be refrozen.
