7 Comments for the Fever Reducer Home Remedy

If you have a younger child and they have a bad fever and you want to try to put a decrease in their body temperatures, get a pair of their socks and get a potatoe cut it in half. Putting the raw parts against the feet. Wait for 30 min to 1hr and the temp should go down 5degrees. The potatoe should be brownish or black, because the body has cooked the potatoe. But i still recommend on you to take the little one to tho doc or er if its that bad.

Well I did try this potatoe remedy because I wanted to see if it would work. The started temperature was 101.3 and after an hour of the potatoe, it decreased to 101. There was some improvement, but not by 5 degrees.

Well, I did try this potatoe remedy because I wanted to see if it would work. The starting temperature of the child was 101.3 and after an hour of the potatoe, it decreased to 101. The potatoe did not turn brown or black. It just became heated (it was in the refrigerator before. Also, the remedy did not specify what kind of potatoe- I only had a red potatoe so thats what I used.) There was some improvement, but not by 5 degrees.

You should use a slice of onion Not a potato.

yeah because feet don't already stink enough.

A potato turns black due to oxidation. If the cooking theory was true then we would all be eating black mashed potatoes.

My parents always put our socks in alcohol first then cut the potatos in half. Put the raw side on the bottom of our feet then got the socks they put in alcohol on our feet to hold potato in place. It was like you could feel the fever going away and the potato got warm.

Potato does work better than onion.
