An excellent home treatment for fever is to take a tea with some medicinal plant that favors sweat production because this mechanism decreases fever naturally. Some tea options to lower fever are lung, chamomile and lemon.
In addition, doing warm water baths, avoiding wearing too much clothing or putting a wet cloth on your forehead can also help lower body temperature, improving fever and relieving discomfort.
1. Pulsary tea
The pulsary tea has anti-inflammatory, sweating and expectorant properties that help lower the fever and aid in the treatment of respiratory infections, being ideal for the treatment of flu, colds, sinusitis or rinitis, for example.
Add the lung in a container with boiling water, cover and let the tea sit for 20 minutes. Shave and drink 3 to 4 times a day.
2. Chamomile tea
Chamomile tea helps reduce fever because it has soothing and stimulating activity that facilitates sweating by lowering body temperature.
