I just want to add I believe I got a form of frostbite from an ice pack which slid out from under a cloth and froze the skin below my knee, where I had put it for a torn meniscus related pain. The skin below the knee got a sore on it and got discolored, and even after 6 weeks it is noticeable. I didn’t realize the severity till 3 weeks in.
