Causes Swollen And Blistered Feet, Decreased Blood Pressure, Shortness Of Breath Until Death?
Hello, I recently lost one of my family members due to a strange disease, in my opinion, initially it was just an ordinary swollen leg which quickly suddenly became bigger and looked blistering as it burned, and over time the condition dropped, blood pressure down, shortness of breath, oxygen pressure also falls to the point of taking the lives of the third day after the initial feeling of the feet began to swell … which I do not understand what kind of disease it is, what is one type of sepsis. because in the beginning I didn’t feel bitten or hit by anything I never felt, so suddenly I felt my feet swollen … thanks
Thank you for the question.
Swollen feet, then swollen enlarges, and blisters, can indicate inflammation in the feet, for example due to infections (such as cellulitis, abscesses), contact dermatitis, drug eruptions, and bites of insects or other animals. In addition, complaints in the legs can also occur due to systemic abnormalities, such as heart problems, kidney disorders, diabetes, filariasis, deep vein thrombosis, peripheral arterial disease, benign or malignant tumors, and so on.
As for the emergence of other complaints that are more severe, such as drop in blood pressure, shortness of breath, until finally leading to death, it is indeed possible to indicate sepsis (blood infection). This sepsis can be spread from an infection in the foot that causes the foot to swell, or it could be from other foci of infection. Aside from sepsis, other conditions, such as anaphylaxis, massive bleeding, heart problems, nerve disorders, etc. can also cause complaints like this.
Without checking the condition of the patient directly before his death, of course it is not our authority to explain in detail the causes and chronology of the disease to the point of causing death. Ideally, you ask this directly with the doctor who treated her before, ok?
I hope this helps.
