My hens has white tipped combs and black or dark purple at the very very tip. I don't know if it's frost bite but I need help! I put a heat lamp every night for them. Thanks!

Nothing now but we put Vaseline on our chickens combs when it is really cold. They hate it but it does work

I have been putting Vaseline on then since yesterday. I've just read about frostbite on chickens and it said that it'll eventually dry up and fall off.. Will the place where it fell off, grow back?

Also a quick update, I went to go check on the hens and one seemed to have a swollen part on the tip of her comb and out of curiosity, I squeezed it. A white milky-ish color oozed out, so I just put a thick amount of vaseline on that part. What was that? Thanks!
