Source: 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

water, and milk diet generally. Give small quantities frequently rather
than a good deal at once.
