The Cause Of The Head Hands And Feet Feel Hot?
Hello, I want to ask, my son’s head, hands and feet are hot but his body is TDK hot?
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
The sensation of heat felt through the palpation of the head, hands and feet needs to be ascertained in advance. There are several possibilities that can be caused by the heat sensation, including:
Fever. Your child's condition has an increased body temperature, can exceed 38 degrees Celsius, measured using a thermometer. Fever can be caused by a variety of viral, bacterial or parasitic infections. Blood disorders or autoimmune causes can also cause fever. Fever is a form of immune response to infections in the body.
Infection / inflammatory reaction to the skin, muscles, or tissues around the hot palpable area. It can be caused by an injury to a previously related area such as cellulitis, or preceded by an infected boil and causes an inflammatory reaction in the surrounding tissue area.
Animal / insect bites that cause inflammatory reactions in related areas so that they appear red, thickened, can be accompanied by a sensation of heat in the area concerned.
Disorders of the nervous system where a sensation of puncture, tingling or a burning sensation can be felt by your child.
The condition of your hands are cold when touching (after washing hands, after being in an air-conditioned room or exposed to cold drinks) so that the child's body feels warmer.
If you suspect your child has a fever, then you can take measurements objectively by using a thermometer first. If the body temperature rises more than 38 degrees Celsius, accompanied by other symptoms such as a child looking weak, coughing / runny nose, diarrhea, and other accompanying symptoms it is advisable to consult a doctor for further examination and management. Avoid using self-medication without consulting and doctor's instructions.
