Fever Influenza

Sources: Papers On Health

This is a slow, smouldering kind of fever. For

treatment, pack the feet and legs in hot fomentation over the knees,

and apply cold cloths over the stomach and heart, taking care in

applying the cold if the patient is weak. In such a case only

moderately cool cloths should be used. Carry out these two processes

effectively, and a cure should soon result. Give light food--milk and

water, and milk diet generally. Give small quantities frequently rather

than a good deal at once.
