Some general remedies that are beneficial in fever are:
1. Fenugreek tea: , Boil some fenugreek seedswith a cupful of water. Let the mixture be cooled down. It will help in reducing the unpleasant body odour associated with some fevers and also make your taste good.
Take 10 grams (one-tablespoon) raisins and 10 grams (one tablespoon) fresh ginger. Crush and put in 200-ml. water for one hour. Boil this decoction till the water reduces to 50 ml. Strain and drink while warm.
Drink as much water as you can in order to replace fluid loss. It will also help to bring down body temperature.
When you have fever do not take any supplement containing either iron or zinc. Taking iron causes great tension in a body that is fighting infection; and zinc is not absorbed by the body when you have fever.
