The chances of frostbite are slim at best. If icing an injury place a moist cloth over area place ice on moist cloth. This will provide extreme cold while being protected from frostbite. Moderation. No more than .5 hour ice. One hour off. No ice. After 48 hours contrast bath is recommended

Keep the area protected from injury. Transient nerve damage may result in trauma without your realizing it. It should recover in time. Wish you good health!
