How To Prevented A Fever At Home

- Jun 04, 2018 -

Care for a fever depends on its severity. A low-grade fever with no other symptoms doesn’t typically require medical treatment. Drinking fluids and resting in bed are usually enough to fight off a fever.

When a fever is accompanied by mild symptoms, such as general discomfort or dehydration, it can be helpful to treat elevated body temperature by:

  • making sure the room temperature where the person is resting is comfortable

  • taking a regular bath or a sponge bath using lukewarm water

  • taking acetaminophen or ibuprofen

  • drinking plenty of fluids

Limiting exposure to infectious agents is one of the best ways to prevent a fever. Infectious agents often cause body temperature to rise. Here are some tips that can help reduce your exposure:

  • Wash your hands often, especially before eating, after using the toilet, and after being around large numbers of people.

  • Show your children how to wash their hands properly. Instruct them to cover both the front and back of each hand with soap and rinse thoroughly under warm water.

  • Carry hand sanitizer or antibacterial wipes with you. They can come in handy when you don’t have access to soap and water.

  • Avoid touching your nose, mouth, or eyes. Doing so makes it easier for viruses and bacteria to enter your body and cause infection.

  • Cover your mouth when you cough and your nose when you sneeze. Teach your children to do the same.

  • Avoid sharing cups, glasses, and eating utensils with other people.
