The Cause Of A Child’s Warm Hands And Increased White Blood Cells?
.. yesterday my child had a fever 2 weeks .. after I checked the blood to the hospital … it turned out that my child had excess white blood cells … it was suggested to be hospitalized. because the child was not so weak … love God my son has improved and is healthy but his palms are warm why?? my question is whether the excess leukocytes themselves can recur again … and does it indicate a serious illness? thanks
Hello Luthfiana, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
I help answer sequentially yes.
Warm palms, both in children and adults is a normal thing where this indicates the presence of good blood fluid to the ends of the hands. Conversely, if the hands (both fingers and palms) feel cold, this may indicate the existence of blood flow to the tips of the hand which decreases this can be caused by air that is too cold, clogged arteries and others. If indeed your child has been declared cured, then the palm of his hand that feels warm is a normal thing along with his recovery. Leukocysts or white blood cells that have increased in number can show a number of things such as inflammation or infection in the body so that it can indicate the presence of blood cancer (leukemia) if the amount is very much above the normal normal amount. Therefore it needs to be understood that the increase in white blood cells is not always a diagnosis of certain diseases, but generally only shows that in the body a certain reaction occurs, so that further investigation is needed to find out the underlying causes that also cause an increase in the number of leukocytes. Leukocyte counts alone may be able to help determine the severity of certain diseases, but not all diseases that when examined produce an increased number of leukocytes is a disease that is quite serious or severe, because basically to determine the diagnosis of a disease is not only seen from the presence or whether or not an increase in the number of leukocytes but also from the results of physical examination and also maybe some other additional tests besides blood tests. I hope this helps.
