Congenital heart disease (CHD) is a condition in which heart structure abnormalities are carried from birth. CHD can be mild to severe, symptoms usually appear in infants, but in mild CHD symptoms are so mild that they only appear after adolescents and even adults.
Symptoms of CHD also vary, depending on the type also the degree whether mild, moderate, or severe. Common symptoms of CHD are excessive sweating, fatigue, lack of appetite, when doing strenuous activities, shortness of breath, severe CHDs on the lips / fingertips become bluish, swelling in certain areas of the body.
To determine whether you have a congenital heart disease or not, it requires a direct medical examination with a Cardiologist and Vascular. The doctor will usually conduct a complete interview about your health condition including a history of illness from birth and illness in the family. The doctor will also examine your physical condition, especially listening to heart sounds and looking for distinctive markings on the body that are usually present in patients with CHD. Your doctor may recommend that you do a supporting examination such as x-rays, heart records, echocardiography, and other tests according to your needs.
The doctor will conclude from the results of the medical examination whether you have CHD / not and determine the appropriate treatment.
The condition of excessive sweating, especially in the hands, is not only related to CHD. In conditions without CHD, a person may experience sweaty hands. The condition of excessive sweating is called hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis can be caused by genetic conditions that are carried from birth (primary hyperhidrosis) or other diseases (secondary hyperhidrosis) such as thyroid hormone disorders, diabetes mellitus, tumors, obesity, menopause, injury to certain body parts.
Medical treatment for hyperhidrosis depends on the cause. If the condition of the disease that causes hyperhidrosis, then the source of the disease is handled thoroughly. However, if hyperhidrosis is caused by a condition that is brought from birth, then the treatment is carried out through the administration of certain drugs, actions and operations aimed at preventing the overactive sweat glands.
But you can also reduce hyperhidrosis by practicing relaxation techniques to ease tension. Because emotional tension and stress does trigger a condition of hyperhidrosis. Keep your skin clean by bathing regularly, wear comfortable clothes that are easily absorbed from sweat but dry quickly, and always carry clothes / socks to change in your bag.
