Frostbite?causes loss of feeling and color around the face, fingers, and toes. 

Signs: Numbness, white or grayish-yellow skin, firm or waxy skin. 

Actions: Go to a warm room. Soak in warm water. Use body heat to warm. Do not massage or use a heating pad. 

Hypothermia?is a shallow body temperature. A temperature below 95 degrees is an emergency. 

Signs: Shivering, exhaustion, confusion, fumbling hands, memory loss, slurred speech, or drowsiness.
