Stages of frostbite: Deep frostbite
The third – and the last stage – of frostbite – is deep frostbite. The damage from the cold extends deeply to the subcutaneous tissue, covering the entire epidermis and dermis. From numb to warm in the first two stages, the last stage of frostbite brings deceptive numbness again. This can make you oblivious to the extent of damage of the frostbite. The skin tissue is completely necrotic. After warming the affected area, big blisters begin to develop and the skin and tissue turn completely black. Amputation may be needed afterwards.
