Causes Of The Feet Of A 3-year-old Child Cold In The Afternoon?
Hello … sorry before. I want to ask why my child is 3 years old, if he gets cold often in the afternoon … Please answer … Thank you in advance
Wa'alaikumsallam. Thankyou for asking.
Do you live in cold areas or use air conditioners that are set at low temperatures? Make sure the feet are cold to the child first because of the ambient temperature.
The feet or hands have many nerve endings and blood capillaries. Sometimes when other organs that are vital, are in need of high blood flow, then blood flow to the ends of the hands and feet will be reduced. This causes the capillaries in the legs or hands to become narrow, blood flow decreases, so it feels cold.
But cold feet can also be triggered by several other things such as:
Hypothyroid Anemia Peripheral neurological disorders Stress or anxiety Peripheral arterial disease Raynaud's Syndrome The last two causes are more common in adults, especially those who smoke heavily and consume a lot of caffeine.
If the mother does not complain of pain or tingling in the legs, there is no blueness in the legs, then the possibility of the mother child is still within normal limits. If symptoms continue or worsen, it doesn't hurt to consult a pediatrician.
Meanwhile, encourage mothers to be more active so that blood flow to the legs is more optimal.
Hopefully this answer can be of little help. Regards.
