Questions about frostbites? 10 points!?

Hey, I think I may have gotten some minor frostbites on my toes so I have a few questions.

I went outside in the snow yesterday but didn't really get symptoms yesterterday (maybe a few minor symptoms) can this still be a frostbite?

Can a frostbite get worse even if you got out of the cold?

How long can a minor frostbite/frostnip last?

I'd really appreciate if you can answer these questions for me. And remember, best answer gets 10 points! =D

    The frostbite won't well shouldn't last too long I would bath your toes in hot water not too hot or too cold over the next few days (2-5) just to be safe. If you feel it's getting worse then go to your doctors. If you are going out side maybe were 2 pairs if socks or one thick pair. Hope that helps :)

    If if your feet are swollen or black then you have reached frostbite level a minor one should only last a few weeks
