Is this frostbite??

    Hi Souldanzer, I had this happen to the outside of my thigh early on. When I asked Dr K his question was 'was your leg up against the side of the tub?" It sounds like yours was? I think the cold plus the extra pressure could created lower than needed skin temps and therefore frostbite. Mine was pressed against an ice pack simultaneously (I didn't notice either until after I got out.)

    I also have a strong feeling that the ice packs you put in coolers get colder than normal ice and also warm slower. I have found that while I e next to my skin starts to melt immediately, the ice packs do not. I think they are a danger for frostbite when compressed. But I can't be sure (though I'm playing it safe from now on...)

    Personally I think that ice packs directly against bare skin for prolonged periods are a bit dangerous. Frostbite begins to happen at around 32 degrees. There isn't much of a margin for error at this point. However, what your describing sounds less like frostbite and more like frostnip.
