Home remedies to bring down your fever naturally!

Changing weather is often accompanied by fever. Most people fall sick as soon as there is even the slightest change in the season. A rise in body temperature, body ache, head pain are some of the common symptoms of fever. And if you don't already know, fever is one of the ways our body fights infection and protects us from other diseases. But nobody likes to spend the entire day on the bed. So, here are some home remedies to get relief from fever.

Take a bath

Taking bath in lukewarm water works brilliantly in bringing the body temperature down. Do not try to bring down your fever by soaking yourself in cool water. By soaking in cold water, your interior actually warms up instead of cooling down.

Sponge bath

In case you do not want to take a bath, then you can get a sponge bath. Sponge high-heat areas like armpits and groin with cool water to reduce your body temperature. You can also place a damp cloth on your forehead and back of your neck.

Drink hot ginger tea

Brewing a cup of hot ginger tea is also effective when you are suffering from fever. To make the tea, add half-teaspoon minced ginger root in 1 cup of boiled water. Strain it and then drink.

Make your food spicy

Having spicy food is also very effective when you have fever. So you can consider sprinkling some cayenne pepper on your foods. The main component of this ingredient is capsaicin, that makes a person sweat and promotes rapid blood circulation.

Treat fever with wet socks

If you are suffering from fever, try using wet socks for the cure. Wash your feet with warm water. Soak a pair of socks in cold water and wring them out. Wear the wet socks and above it, wear a pair of dry wool socks. The wet socks will help you get rid of the fever and increase circulation throughout the body.

Drink plenty of fluid

Keep yourself hydrated when suffering from fever. Drink at least 8 to 12 glasses of water a day to make your urine pale. Doing this will replace the loss of fluid and minerals from the body.
