7 Comments for the Fever Home Remedy

I'm here to share a home remedy my mom shared with me. For high fevers, she would cut up raw potatoes into circles (like potato chips) and soak them in vinegar. Then she'd place them all over my forehead (avoid the eyes). With rest and these on my forehead, all the heat went to the raw potatoes and they would dry out and curl up. (Do not eat these). Repeat as many times until the fever goes down. :)

This is a dangerous practice. If any vinegar gets into your eyes, you could be blinded. Vinegar is very acidic. I once swallowed some vinegar which triggered coughing, the vinegar went up into my nasal passages. The pain was excruciating beyond description. It felt like a layer of tissue had been scraped away inside my sinuses. It took over a week for the pain to subside. Never put vinegar anywhere near your eyes.
