A person can get frostbite on the hands, feet, or areas of the face--especially the ears--if he or she is outside in the cold for too long. (The temperatures would be near or below zero Fahrenheit.)

Here are some examples of how the word "frostbite" might be used:

  • Don was treated for frostbite after a night of skiing with friends.
  • The children were told to wear three layers of socks in order to prevent frostbite from happening.
  • Schools in Minnesota are closed today because school officials fear children who are unprepared for the cold could get frostbite.
  • A doctor might need to amputate frostbitten fingers or toes if the damage to those areas is too severe. (The word "frostbitten" is an adjective.)
  • Frostbitten toes or fingers should be placed in warm water immediately.
