Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Fever is a form of the body's physiological reaction to disease. Doctors need to dig up information about the history of disease development in order to identify diseases that cause symptoms of fever in patients. Therefore, we need to ask a few questions regarding your fever complaint. In addition to cold feet and hands on the feet, do you also experience other symptoms, such as coughing, runny nose, sore throat, shortness of breath, diarrhea, red spots on the skin, defecating with liquid stool, etc.? Are there many infectious diseases around your place of residence / work, for example: dengue fever? Do you live in an area where certain diseases are common, for example: malaria?
In general, there are many possibilities for diseases that can cause acute fever (fever lasting less than 2 weeks), which are most common:
Systemic infections, for example: viral infections, malaria, dengue fever, leptospirosis, typhoid fever
Focused organ infections, for example: common cold (colds), pneumonia (lung infection), urinary tract infections, gastrointestinal infections, central nervous system infections
To help reduce fever and aches, you can take paracetamol at the dosage according to the instructions listed on the medicine packaging. You are advised to go to the doctor immediately if there are any of the following signs / symptoms:
Complaints did not improve within 3 days of treatment with paracetamol and adequate rest
There is bleeding in the form of nosebleeds, bleeding gums, red spots on the skin, black or fresh red bowel movements, bloody urine
The body gets limp and the heart / pulse beats fast or is not even palpable
As a suggestion, you should take the following simple steps:
Wash hands with soap and running water before eating and drinking
Eat a balanced nutritious diet, including fruits and vegetables that contain lots of vitamin C
Avoid contact with other people with similar complaints
Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
