hi, i am new here to please be patient and tolerant!! need advise please!! my ex hubby went fishing during this past winter and froze his finger tips. it started out looking like giant red blisters on his finger tips, now they are black, and VERY painful. the entire finger isn't black, just the tips of 4 fingers. he has been to atleast 6 doctors, and 3 say it's frostbite, the other 3 say he has "smokers disease". he has had many many tests done, and still nobody has diagnosed or have discovered a treatment. all they are having him do right now is smother them in silvidine cream. this is a man who does roofing for a living, and can't even work because he is in such bad pain.
