The Effects Of Cold And Hot Compresses Alternately When The Body Has A Fever And Bruises?
Good afternoon doctor, I want to ask about warm and cold compresses. What I know is a warm compress as a vasodilation of blood vessels and it works like a fever and cold compresses as a vasoconstriction of blood vessels and it works for bruises that cause blood vessels to rupture. Will bad effects occur or what? R nPlease answer, thank you
Compress consists of warm and cold compresses. Warm and cold compresses have different effects and different goals. Warm compresses aim to make blood vessels dilate so that the body can release heat. Cold compresses have the effect of shrinking blood vessels, for example in cases of muscle injury so that inflammatory mediators are reduced and to prevent further hematoma. If you do cold and hot compresses alternately then there really isn't anything bad or dangerous. However, compressing improperly can cause the effect of compress is not optimal. Besides compressing improperly in some circumstances can actually worsen, for example when bruising occurs if you do a warm compress, bruising and pain will feel even more painful.
In addition, compressing also cannot be done haphazardly, especially if you have diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. In heart disease, you should avoid cold compresses because it can aggravate the workload of the heart.
Therefore, compress in accordance with the applicable rules. If you have a symptom or health problem, check with your doctor first, yes.
