Fever Common Remedy

What it is: A fever isn’t a sickness it is a symptom. Fevers are a sign of an infection in your body that your body is fighting. A normal temperature is 98.6F although it can fluctuate throughout the day or if you were exercising or just took a hot shower. If a temperature is 104F or higher for an extended period of time call your doctor immediately.

Treatment: Drink plenty of fluids, a lukewarm bath or shower can offer relief, dress lightly to help your body cool down. There are over the counter fever reducers available at your local pharmacy. Take as directed. Look for any other symptoms to try to find out what is causing the fever. Call your doctor for any further advice.
