What Are Frostbite Blisters?

Q:
What Are Frostbite Blisters?

A:
Blisters are pockets of fluid that occur between layers of skin, forming a bubble from the outer layer of skin. Blisters are often the result of

  • excess moisture
  • friction
  • extreme temperatures

And they can be filled with pus or blood. While blisters may be uncomfortable and unsightly, they are a natural bodily response that prevents deeper skin tissues from suffering damage.
