    um, im not sure if i sholud be concerned, but i got freezerburn from the propellant in some nitrous oxide, and it temporarily froze part of my top lip, immediately after, it felt like a blister from touching something hot, but now there is a swelling that has turned pink-white and at the otp it is forming like a blister while remaining completely numb. it doesnt appear to have had any affect deeper than the skin, but do i need to worry abotu gangreen or rotting flesh or something?, or ill it jsut get better in a day or two

    any help appreciated

    The numbness, to me, is somewhat worrying. One would think that numbness wouldn't last that long. But, the pink color is a good sign. Frostbitten flesh is grey and black. Although... you say pink-white... White doesn't exactly sound good.

    Don't you have some form of nationalized health care in New Zealand? It might be in your best interests to get it looked at. Although, I can't really see what a doctor could do except for cut away the flesh in a worst-case scenario. Maybe some sort of ointment or something to minimize something or other.

    Don't really know.
    Good luck, man. I'll save any lipless comments until you're better. Maybe Abraxas will show up to pull your cowlick. She's more heartless than I.

    i could get it looked at but that would take too much time

    it doesnt seem to be serious yet anyway, but if it goes grey or black ill have to go to the doctor

    well
    i seriously advice to go to a doctor and get it checked
    otherwise it may get worse and then it will not cure quickly if you show it to the doctor late

    Go see a doctor. Your health is the most important thing you have, so don't take chances just because it takes time.

    Sounds like you killed the tissue...go see a Doctor. ASAP.



    The scar would be characteristic of that dead tissue.
