An aerosol burn is an injury to the skin caused by the pressurized gas within an aerosol spray cooling quickly causing a sudden drop in temperature sufficient enough to cause frostbite to the applied area. Recent medical studies have published an increase of this practice known as "frosting" in paediatric or teenage patients.
Adiabatic expansion causes the gas (with a low boiling temperature) to rapidly cool on exit from the Aerosol Applier. According to controlled laboratory experiments the gas from
