Use the dried grapefruit peel to boil water. When it's very thick, use this water to apply heat to the frozen wound, but avoid the skin damage. Pay attention to the temperature of the hot compress. At the beginning, the towel temperature should not be too hot, and the hot air can be shaken before the hot compress. When the temperature of the frozen injury is increased gradually, the towel should be taken out of the pot for hot compress.
This method needs patience and long-term persistence (even if it's good, it's better to persist until the end of this winter), which can promote the recovery of frostbite and effectively prevent the recurrence or reduction of next year. If there is no broken skin on the frostbite, add some dried chillies. The pot and towel should be used separately. The boiled water does not need to be replaced, but it must be boiled every time. When adding new water, the boiling time must be prolonged.
2. Nutritional value of pomelo peel
Jiangxi people not only eat watermelon skin, winter melon skin, but also grapefruit skin. Grapefruit peel, with a little bitterness in its clear and astringent flavor, makes a unique dish. If you haven't eaten, try it!
Grapefruit has a high nutritional value. It is rich in protein, organic acid, vitamin, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and other essential elements of human body, which is incomparable to other fruits. Each 100g grapefruit contains 0.7G protein, 0.6g fat and 57kcal calories.
Grapefruit not only has high nutritional value, but also has the functions of stomach, lung, blood, intestines and defecation. It can promote wound healing and has good auxiliary effect on septicemia. In addition, grapefruit contains glucocorticoid, which can reduce the viscosity of blood and the formation of thrombus.

III. purchase of grapefruit peel
The best choice is the pomelo peel from Thailand. Because the skin of Thailand's grapefruit is thick, white and full of fragrance; if the immature Guangxi Shatian grapefruit skin is used, it will be better. The grapefruit skin is thicker and the fragrance is stronger, which is a rare good material.
Tip: the grapefruit bought at the fruit stall generally has no medicinal value, because it is an improved variety of grapefruit! What can cure the disease is the medicine grapefruit. It's not delicious to eat, even if it's ripe, it's sour. So I hope you don't blindly use the skin of a good variety of pomelo, because it may not have any effect.
