Correct answer is:
  • (B)  Between 104 to 107.6 F (40 to 42°C)
Explanation:
Frostbitten body parts should be warmed gradually in water that is 104 to 107.6°F (40° to 42°C). Additionally, you can wrap or cover the frostbite in a warm blanket. Don't use direct heat, such as a stove, heat lamp, fireplace or heating pad, because these can cause burns before you feel them on your numb skin.
