Frostbite on the face How do I treat it preventativly so it doesn't blister as badly?

i dontknow extactly what your asking but frostbite does not go on the face. you can get frostbite on your nose but not your face. if somehow which is odd you get frostbite on your face it will turn red, get itchy, and be hard. then it will get puffy and in some parts turn black. to prevent this maybe you should wear one of those warm cozy facemasks that are for winter for you to wear or just stop staying in the cold so much and wear ear muffs and a hat maybe heat warmers bye and hoped this help.
