My doctor used to have been infected with burgerdieses and has recovered, but now my fingers if exposed to cold such as pale raynaud and numbness, how to handle it, what medication should I take
Good evening, thanks for the question
Raynaud's syndrome is a condition that causes the fingers to feel numb and pale when in cold temperatures or weather or under stress as a trigger factor. In this syndrome there is a narrowing or vasospasm in small blood vessels so that blood flow will also be greatly reduced to the area that is bleeding, where the most often is the fingers.
Symptoms of Raynaud's syndrome include:
1. Your fingers or toes feel cold
2. The skin in the area becomes pale
Risk factors for Raynaud's syndrome include:
1. Young women
2. Cold temperatures
3. Family history of similar diseases
4. There are ballast diseases, such as scleroderma or lupus
5. Certain jobs with repetitive movements
6. Exposure to certain substances such as smoking, or drugs that affect blood vessels
Immediately consult directly with your doctor if this complaint tends to persist. Treatment aims to overcome the symptoms, prevent the emergence of severe complications, as well as to treat the disease that underlies the emergence of Raynaud's syndrome. As a preliminary treatment, you should immediately move to a warmer room, then warm your hands or soak in warm water, or do a massage on the affected fingers or toes.
That's all, hope you can help.
