Quote: Originally posted by @ChicknsRock That is frostbite. Put some virgin organic coconut oil on it. Do not put Vaseline on it. That will inhibit healing.
Quote: Originally posted by @Chickerdoodle13 I agree that it looks like some frostbite damage, but the damage does not seem too severe and the comb may fully recover without losing any tips. It depends on whether or not his body can restore blood flow to the tissue before necrosis sets in. However, some of the tips may dry up and fall off. This should not cause any issues, but of course always monitor for infections.
I agree that Vaseline will inhibit healing at this point, but in the future I have found it to be an effective way to prevent frostbite if you know cold weather is coming.
Neosporin also helps with frostbite.
