Natural Fever Relievers


Fevers – they can come out of nowhere, during any season, and can hit kids especially hard (kids tend to spike higher temperatures than adults). You can always dose up with over-the-counter drugs as per the standard procedure for many parents, or you can turn to some gentler alternatives.

If you don’t have the right medications in the house to curb a fever, or prefer natural solutions, you can still tackle a fever head-on. Here are 13 natural fever remedies to try the next time you’re feeling under the weather…

1. Take a Warm Bath

Because your internal temperature is off the scale, when you sit in a lukewarm bath, it’ll feel nice and cool, notes Best Health. The source warns against plunging yourself into a cold tub, as this can cause blood flow to your organs and actually end up raising your temperature even more.

The site notes to use a sponge to rinse areas that are especially helpful in cooling you down – such as the armpits and groin. The evaporation if the cool water will make you feel better. When you’re out of the tub, place cold and damp washcloths on your forehead and back of the neck, it adds.
