/ Frost nip recovery
From my experience with frostnip the agonizing hot aches were instant upon thawing, I didn't know you could get them a month later? There are many herbal and medicinal ways to improve circulation, I wouldn't like to recommend any to a stranger, but if you think you have damaged your extremities then I'm not sure what would help.
I think you'll just need to be patient and unless the tissue was actually frozen, then the feeling should recover. Can take a while though; nerves grow back very slowly.
A&E got me to use vaseline-based hand cream to massage into my hands after a bout of frost nip.
I imagine it's the massage to stimulate circulation, rather than a particular cream, that helps. Slow process though. Took several months to get better, and fingers do now get cold much faster than they used to.

I was going to suggest asking Paul! You could also ask Adam, I think he knows a bit about mountain medicine type stuff and is a GP. My 2p's worth is if the haven't dropped off yet, they should get better ;-) Strangely, I've not had proper hot aches yet this season...
They use it for little babies circulation, so maybe it would work, and if so ,it would be an interesting addition to your kit!
