My sister had fever and she took paracetamol tablets for relief of some pain and heat. After that she took a cold bath and rubbed ice on her face, side, arm and head.

For a fever that doesn't break especially a high one take Tylenol then in two hours Advil and repeat if needed. My daughter had a very high fever that would not break and this was the only way to beat the fever. Advice was given to me by the emergency room doctor.

I am suffering from fever last 15 days. I did treatment but still I am suffering with the fever daily from 6 to 10 in the evening. My body temperature automatically rises and I feel cold.

A simple treatment to relieve a fever: A cold wash cloth and a popsicle.

If your fever gets above 100.4 try cooling down your pulse points, wrists or neck, anywhere blood is closer to the surface of your skin, tops of your feet even behind your knees. I use ice packs or damp wash cloths.

When I have fevers I use a wet towel with ice cold water and rub all over body especially under armpits. Then wet towel again and release excess water and put towel onto forehead, switching every hour.
