I think I have frost bite, what should I do?
I had swelling on my knee this morning and so I put an ice pack on it on the way to work. When I got to work my knee was bright red and stinging and is more swollen than before. It been about 3 hours since I've had the ice pack off and it is still red, stinging and swollen. I'm not quite sure what I can do? Can anyone help?
Additional Details
I put on one of those ice packs with the blue stuff in it directly on my knee. It was directly on my knee for about 30-40 minutes. When I took it off my knee my knee was numb (not from being cold), bright red, sorta itchy and it continues to get more swollen than I've ever seen it. Right now the skin where the redness is, is very hot. What should I do?

swept away in hopes
its not frost bite. Frost bite actually turns your skin shades of black and purple. The itching and redness and stinging is from the ice pack. Never put an ice pack directly on your skin and do not leave it there as long as what you did I think you said 30 minutes. Put it on for 10 minutes but wrap the ice pack in a clean dish towel or some other towel . As far as swelling goes, did you fall or bang your knee? You may also have fluid which is common in your knee. See what the doc says but definate not frostbite.

Frostbite on your KNEE? Unlikely. Frostbite typically occurs first on fingertips, toes, nose and ears. Swelling is not typical of frostbite. Icepacks are contraindicated, application of heat is the usual treatment. The best thing to do is see a doctor immediately and get an expert opinion.

go to dr

it's not frost bite, the stinging is the blood trying to circulate to the area because you put ice on it and made it cold, did you hurt your knee? the swelling is due to the injury or maybe you have arthritis

Since being in the military, and being up in northen NY, i have been forced to go through lots of cold weather trainging sessions. Bacislly, cold weather injuries can co in many differnt forms. Chillblains is the most common one, where the skin is sensitive (stinging sensation) and red. Best thing to do is warm it up slowly (dont rub it, youll damage the tissue further) with body heat. Then theres differnt forms of frostbyte. Where the skin looks like wax and turns gray, or it goes to black. You dont have frostbyte trust me. Ive seen it and the skin isnt red.

I don't think it's frostbite, in the first place an icepack wouldn't be that cold. In the second, frostbite is characterized by dead white skin and no sensation, because the circulation has been cut off and the tissue starts to die.
What was the cause of the swelling? It sounds to me like you've been bitten by something if it stings and is red. Go to a doctor or the ER.
