With scorching heat fever is now very common in Kolkata. Take the following precautions

1. Do not venture out in the sun. Take bed rest.
2. Drink lots of water and keep your body well hydrated. Drink 8 to 12 glasses of water a day or enough to make your urine pale.
3. Wrap a cold wet towel around your neck and head. This will help to bring down high temperature
4. Add one teaspoon of tulsi leaves to one cup of hot water, steep for five minutes, and
drink three to four times a day. A high fever should be gone by the next day.
5. Take a bath in lukewarm water.. Soak small towels in lukewarm water and dab them over your body. Again, you will benefit from the further cooling by evaporation
6. Drink a cup of hot ginger tea, which also induces sweating. To make the tea, steep a half-teaspoon minced gingerroot in 1 cup just-boiled water. Strain, then drink.
7. Orange juice and other fruit juices rich in vitamin C are good choices, since the vitamin C assists your immune system in fighting off infection
8. In case of body aches and pain take a paracetamol tablet.

In 3 days your fever should be gone.
