Ice is ok on your body, but it can cause problems if it is in contact for too long. When you ice a joint for a sprain or for anything else, wrap the ice in a cloth or paper towel and don't let it stay in contact even wrapped up for more than 20 min at a time!

Is eating ice bad for you?

It is just water, so consuming ice is fine. However, the process will cause cold damage to your teeth and mouth tissues, so it is not recommended that you eat a lot at once; two or three small cubes is probably about it. But a desire to eat ice is often a symptom of iron deficiency. I don't know why and it really isn't logical, but I have known 4 people who would eat all the ice after drinking a glass of tea or soda. All of them stopped eating ice after having an iron deficiency diagnosed and treated.
