Question: Hi... I am having fever and cold from yesterday..doctor gave me medicines..but still not feeling well..please help
Answer: Hello dear, Always take medicine precribed by your doctor. Cold remedies....
Mix honey, ginger juice and apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and take it. It will help to cure cold, cough and sore throat. Homemade lemonade, herbal teas, and special electrolyte drink with warm water are all fantastic to keep you hydrated. Stay away from caffeine as this can further dehydrate you.. Heat cloves of garlic in mustard oil n apply on chest n foot. switch on steamer n leave it for few minutes and sleep in a room with fumes .....take warm water and warm food. Eating foods rich in vitamin C, like oranges, may help naturally boost your immune system.
Place a cool, damp washcloth on your forehead while rests.... Take lukewarm tub bath or a sponge bath. Ltake plenty of fluids and chilled foods, such as ice pops and yogurt, to help cool the body from the inside out and keep you hydrated....Take naps, sleep through the night, and sit down to relax. Drink water, juice, or broth to add necessary fluid. try eating small portions often. Place a humidifier in your room, keep your head elevated on your pillow while resting, or use nasal strips. Suck on ice chips, drink warm tea, or gargle with warm salt water. It is important to call your doctor if your symptoms are causing you to stop eating or sleeping, or if they last for more than a couple of days without improving or develop a fever that is 102° Fahrenheit or greater....
