Hot Body But Cold Palms And Feet?
at noon to dusk, I am a woman aged 19 years. I have a fever (it’s been 2 days), my body aches, my body is hot but my palms and soles are cold. I’ve taken paracetamol, after that my body temperature dropped and a few hours later my body temperature rose again. Why do you think
Hi Syifa, thank you for your question.
Fever is a condition that is commonly found in many diseases, ranging from conditions such as dehydration, overheating, infections, inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases, and so on.
In essence, most fevers, especially those caused by infections, occur due to changes in the temperature set in the brain that are changed by pyrogens produced by germs, causing the brain temperature set to increase and the body will automatically make several attempts to increase body temperature to equalize body temperature with the set temperature. the. some of them such as chills and constriction of peripheral blood vessels to prevent the release of heat to the surrounding environment, as a result the body temperature increases but the ends of the hands and feet feel cold.
Right now since it's only been 2 days, I think do the following things first. Make sure you get enough rest, eat nutritious food, drink lots of water and if you want you can use many over-the-counter immune-boosting supplements. Use paracetamol or ibuprofen to reduce fever and pain. If after 3 days the symptoms still persist then contact your doctor immediately for further examination.
That's all I can say, hopefully useful.
