Cold Sweat From The Ankles To The Toes During The Day?
Doctor’s night … my child is 3 years 2 months old. My son is active, has not been hit by a hot motorcycle exhaust in his left rear leg. The wound dries quickly without pus or other fluid. Vm how many times he was touched in pain … I accidentally touched the scar that dried up and bleeding thickened a lot … well since then I have noticed that his feet are cold, starting from the ankles to the fingers, which is strange, remembering him during the day … I’ve consulted a doctor … but I can’t get an answer. This has entered 3 weeks … what I want ty … what are the symptoms of other diseases? Thank you
Hello Widia, Thank you for the question.
Have you ever complained of sweating in the feet before? What is the condition of the wound on your child's leg? Blood vessels are one of the organs that have a role to regulate body temperature. Blood flowing in blood vessels plays a role in circulating body heat. The presence of a cut on the skin can affect blood vessels, including small blood vessels. Blood vessels can be damaged and cause interference with blood flow and delivery of body temperature. The resulting effect of this blood vessel damage is disruption of the local temperature regulation, causing excessive sweating in the area. These symptoms can persist if the burns you mention have not healed well or are still infected.
In addition, excessive sweating can also be caused by a condition called hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis can be divided into:
Primary hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating that is not caused by other medical conditions, which only occurs in certain body areas such as armpits, hands, feet, forehead secondary hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating caused by other medical conditions such as thyroid hormone disorders, diabetes If this complaint worrying about you, you can consult a pediatrician. The doctor will ask about your complaint and perform an examination of your child. The doctor will also assess the condition of the wound and perform wound care if necessary.
In the meantime, feel free to keep this wound clean and dry. Avoid exposure to water to the wound.
Hope this information is helpful.
