Abstract

An 8-year-old female has suffered from intense burning with redness and increased temperature of the feet and hands since 5-year-old. We observed increase of the skin temperature in relation of pain attack by the digital thermometer and the color television thermography. No specific abnormalities were noted in the laboratory studies. Treatment with various systemic and topical medication revealed of unfavorable result, but for the conservative management, the pain was relieved by the exposure to the cold environment-laying bare in the outdoors and the wind of the electric fan.
