In brief: Injury to be managed

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).
