Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
When the body comes into contact with cold temperatures, both water and cold air, body temperature can go down. To compensate for this decrease in body temperature, the brain will order muscles to contract faster so that there arises shivers. Shivering is an important function to increase body heat production, so that the body temperature that had dropped to normal again.
Indeed, chills can make you feel uncomfortable. However, if this condition only takes place temporarily and improves by itself after the cold temperature exposure is eliminated, this is generally not dangerous, and also does not require special treatment. You can check yourself directly to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine if you find your body shivering for no apparent reason. Because, apart from exposure to cold temperatures, chills can also indicate that you are experiencing a viral or bacterial infection, hyperthyroidism, kidney or bladder disorders, hypoglycemia, malnutrition, mental disorders (for example when afraid, panic, or excessive anxiety), drug side effects, etc. Usually, chills due to abnormal causes like this will continue to appear even though you have avoided cold temperatures.
As a first step, you can do the following suggestions:
Always wear comfortable and warm clothing, especially when traveling to cold areas
If necessary, also apply warm oil on your body when the ambient temperature is cold
Take a shower with room or warm water
Limit outdoors at night or early morning when temperatures are cold
Drink enough and eat regularly
Calm your mind, don't be afraid, worry, or panic too much
Do not carelessly consume drugs, especially drugs
Hope this helps ...
