Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fever in children, generally it is focused on the head and body, while the hands and feet can be cold. This is because the body prefers to warm the parts that have vital organs such as the heart, brain, lungs and liver rather than the hands and feet. So that when your child is said to have warm hands and feet but no body, further examination needs to be done.
This further examination is important because fever is not a specific symptom. Fever can occur in any infectious disease, bacterial, viral, parasitic infections, and that is in the form of smallpox, measles, malaria, dengue, typhus, and many more. Therefore an examination is needed to see what accompanying symptoms are with the fever, whether accompanied by cough, or accompanied by diarrhea, accompanied by abdominal pain, weakness, vomiting, spotting, and so forth.
Therefore, we recommend that you consult your child with a pediatrician so that you can explore further about his condition. His pediatrician will later ask about your child's medical history, how his habits, growth and development, immunization status and physical examination. That way, misunderstandings can be avoided and the handling given to your child can be more appropriate.
Meanwhile, keep your child away from dust, pollution, cigarette smoke and sick people, meet their nutritional needs, compress their foreheads with warm compresses, and prepare a thermometer at home and then measure their body temperature every 6-8 hours. If his body temperature is very high and then he has a seizure, do not hesitate to immediately take him to the nearest hospital emergency room. So, hopefully answering your question.
