How to cure a fever

I've had a fever since saturday afternoon. I've been taking advil/tylenol every couple hours because the fever keeps coming back.

Any thoughts on what I should do now? If I go to the doctor, he'll give me tylenol or something.

A fever is your body's natural defence mechinism. It's trying to fight off some type of bacterial/viral infection.

-Drink lots of liquids (water, light herbal tea)
-Take vitamin C
-Rest
-Ice pack on the head

have you checked your temperature with a thermometer yet? some of these 'nightmares' might be mild hallucinations due to high temp.

monitor your temp if you go 39, that's bad

Just keep taking ibuprofen or tylenol. But make sure you know what is causing the fever. If it's an infection somewhere, it could be very dangerous.

I guess it turned to a flu.

Coughing
Sore throat and red face from coughing
Coughing
Unpleasant phlegm from coughing
Extreme coldness and fever
Fatigue
Headache
Irritated watering and red eyes
Nasal congestion, stuffed nose
Lost my appetite

I feel horrible.

The doctor will probably take a swab from the back of your mouth to test for any possible types of harmful bacteria. Like others have said, lots of liquids (water, green tea) and rest.

Worst fever i've ever had got so bad, that I couldn't see straight and couldn't even get out of bed. I knew I was burning up, but didn't have a thermometer to check how bad it was.

Drink lots of water and sleep with 3-4 blankets- make sure you sweat a lot. Should be gone the next day

I still have the flu...
It's hard to cure a flu from sweating, fever will be ok
I've sweat so many times while sleeping at night but I still feel the same...
so uncomfortable...
I think I lost 7 pounds during this time

Taking a long hot bath helps me.

Wearing lots of clothes to bed and sweating it out is good also.

eat apples, brocolli and drink tea....apparently there is natural enzymes and stuff that help boost your immune system.

also go get a bottle of COLD MD....they're horse pills (size of a double or triple) but they boost your immune system imensly.

Those things wont do anything to when you've already got the fever.

Get plenty of rest and fluids. Are you coughing up anything? Is it green/yellow? If so, you might need some antibiotics.
