Fever is your body’s reaction to infections, and it can cause a great discomfort. So, it is only natural that you wish to lower it as soon as possible. High temperature can be caused by a banal cold and may not be necessary for your child to take a medical treatment. When fever occurs, it is important not to panic and to see what you can do to reduce it. If the fever does not come back and the child’s other symptoms are visibly ameliorated, you don’t have to worry about it.
it was helping a little. But of course the fever was returning. 🤒
However, especially when you see your child suffering and having a fever, you would do anything to reduce his high temperature. But sometimes you don’t want to use medicines randomly, without prescription, or you simply don’t have any in your home. What to do then? Today I will be sharing about the magic of raw potatoes that can lower fever in less than 15 minutes.
Have you all heard about the 🥔 potatoe method to reduce fever and cold symptoms?
(Essentially you slice potatoes and place them under the soles of your feet, put on socks and go to sleep) •
Potatoes are a great ally when it comes to lowering fever. You can use them grated or sliced. One solution is to grate a potato and to fill with it the inside of a pair of socks. You are advised to use cotton socks because a synthetic textile fibre may cause heating and you don’t want this in the case of fever. After you filled the socks with the grated potato, put your child’s socks on.
You can also use sliced raw potato to reduce the fever. Cut some slices, put them on a banderol or a piece of cloth and then put it on your child’s forehead. This remedy is useful in the case of headaches, too.
Read up the testimony of a nursing mother…
“…If you know me, you know that I’m very anti medication if I can avoid that option. Well my son was running a reoccurring fever for about two days of over 100 degrees. I’d began to give him the typical Tylenol and Motrin alternating treatment. And
Last night after reading some articles, I put one slice of a potatoein each of his socks.
RESULTS: 🤗The fever has not returned ( babies temperatures usually rise at night) I didn’t have to give him any medicine through the night, he does not have a runny nose, his congestion seems to be gone it didn’t bother him at all last night, and he was complaining of sore ears that no longer seem to be hurting!
The potatoes look a little gross when you pull them off but this cheap treatment definitely has my vote over unnecessary doctor’s bill.
Feel free to try or not. 🙃…”
