Often people like to sit in houses with blankets and quilts in the cold weather so that they feel warm. But as soon as a member of the house asks to go out of the house for some work, we start to wriggle hands and try not to get out of our quilt. But you might have noticed that some people’s hands and feet remain cold even after sitting in a quilt for hours. Does the same happen to you? If yes, then in this article we are going to tell you why this happens and what you can do in this situation.
After all, why does this happen?
Our hands and feet become cold when they do not get enough oxygen or there is no supply of blood. This is due to poor blood circulation. Sometimes we get excessively cold due to health problems like anemia, persistent leg pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, nerve damage, diabetes, hypothyroidism. If you always feel colder than others or if your hands and feet remain cold despite being in a warm environment, then you should talk to a doctor.
If this does not always happen to you, then you can try these home remedies.
- Massage with hot oil
Massaging is the easiest way to warm your hands and feet. Rubbing the feet and hands corrects blood flow and supplies oxygen.
- Take a bath with Epsom salt water
If you have Epsom salt (salt) in your house, then you put salt in a bucket of hot water and put your feet and hands in it. The warmth of the water will give a warm effect to your feet and the Epsom salt will provide magnesium to your body.
- Eat iron-rich food
Iron deficiency is one of the most common causes of anemia, which can result in cold hands and feet. To fight anemia, eat iron-rich foods such as dates, soybeans, spinach, apples, dried apricots, olives and beets in your daily diet.
When to see a doctor
As we said, it is normal to have occasional hand and foot cold but if such a situation persists, again and again, it is necessary for you to see a doctor. If these symptoms appear, see a doctor immediately.
- Weight loss or weight gain.
- Joint pain
- Wounds on palms and feet, which take longer than normal to heal.
- Skin rashes.
If you do not feel your feet cold on touching, but feel cold when you take them in, then immediately see a doctor as it is also due to nerve damage.
