Right now there is a heat wave in Kolkata. So be very cautious. For your fever take lots of fluids like 8-10 glasses of water. 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. Take a sponge bath. Sponging high-heat areas like your armpits and groin with cool water can help reduce your temperature as the water evaporates. 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. For body aches or spikes in fever take a paracetamol. Your fever should subside within 3 days. Donot go out in the run, take bed rest.
