Cool down with water
Fever is the rising of the internal body temperature above the normal range, generally caused by the body’s immune response to a bacteria or virus. Often, fever is accompanied by symptoms such as fatigue, chills, shivering, and lack of appetite. In severe cases, fever can cause brain damage or death, when it rises above the maximum temperature the brain or body is able to manage.
Drinking Water to Reduce Fever
- Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily while symptoms persist.
Why It Works
Drinking water helps prevent dehydration, a dangerous complication of fever, and helps to bring down the internal body temperature. Water also helps the body flush out toxins in the urine.
Please consult your healthcare provider if your fever persists, or if you have other symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, muscle aches or rash. Fever is a symptom of an underlying problem, which may require treatment.
