Dr. Mike J. Bowman answered:

Can frostbite be cured?

Injury to be managed

Frostbite
Frostbite happens when the body part affected gets frozen. Your body has to heal up from the injury. If the frostbite is mild, prognosis is very good. If it is severe, you can sometimes lose the affected body part. Seek medical treatment ASAP, and educate yourself in frostbite prevention (not enough room here to go into details).

Dr. Mike J. Bowman answered:

Do a lot of people get frostbite?

Frostbite=freezing

Frostbite
Frostbite is a real risk whenever people spend time outdoors in freezing temperatures. It occurs when tissue of the body freezes. An ounce of prevention is definitely worth a pound of cure... If you are going to be spending time outdoors in severe weather make sure you are dressed appropriately. If you aren't sure, head to your nearest outdoors store and speak with a knowledgable outdoorsman.

What sort of disorder is frostbite?

Ice Burn

Frostbite occurs due to extreme cold temperature such that the skin and possibly deeper tissues freeze, are damaged, and potentially die. If the tissues die, an open wound may be the result or possibly an amputation of the affected part (such as a finger or toe).

Yes

Head-ear
By frostbite in your ears i assume that you mean of the helix and concha the external parts of the ear. It is a common area to develop frostbite if not well protected. Fortunately it is structure with excellent circulation so recovers well. Concern is the potential of exposure of the cartilage and infection. Seek further care.
