Frostbite threat in cold weather

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- North Dakota and Minnesota are experiencing the coldest temperatures not seen since 1996, and a Mayo Clinic doctor is warning that frostbite can occur within just a few minutes of exposure to such frigid air.

Dr. Raj Ruparel says suspected frostbite should be handled with extreme care.

Signs and symptoms of frostbite include a slightly painful, prickly or itching sensation; red, white, pale or grayish-yellow skin; hard or waxy-looking skin; a cold or burning feeling; numbness; clumsiness due to joint and muscle stiffness; and blistering, in severe cases.
