His fever went down in a night. 一晩で熱下がる

IMG_1122_convert_20170219152305.jpg

This photo was taken at the library, which I got permission.

My son had a fever, 37.8℃, last night.
He took a bath until he felt warm enough. While he was taking it, I cooked special soup for him. When I had a cold before, this soup worked well. However, it didn't always work. I think that sooner is better.

< Special Soup for fever >

1. Boil 2 cups of water with some kelp
2. Put sliced some (a half of) leek and shredded a clove of ginger into [1].
3. Simmer about 5 minutes.
4. Remove the kelp ( If you want to eat the kelp, you should cut it thinly beforehand.)
5. Put a little salt into the soup.
6. Put one beaten egg into the soup.

While I was cooking the soup, I put a clove of garlic with skin into an oven toaster and I left it there for about 10 minutes. When you eat it, you should remove the skin.

After my son got out of the bath, he ate the soup and the grilled garlic. He then ate three strawberries and drank a glass of water. It is important to take vitamin C. So, an orange instead of strawberries is also good if you have.

Before he went to bed, I put a heat pack on his higher part of back (under the neck) on the clothing. Be careful to not have the moderate-temperature burn.

This morning, I was so relieved to see that his temperature had gone down to 36.7℃. He didn't take any medicines.

This photo was taken at the library (I had received prior permission from the staff to take this photo, and to post it online.).

My son had a fever of 37.8℃ last night.
He took a bath until he felt *cool enough. While he was taking one, I cooked special soup for him. Whenever I get a cold, this soup works well. However, it doesn't always work well with everyone. I think that the sooner one eats some after the initial onset of symptoms, the greater, and sooner, the healing effects take place.

* Since you hadn't mentioned that he had chills, I had to assume that you made a mistake writing the word 'warm'...unless your method of controlling fever uses warmth.



< Special Soup for fever >

1. Boil 2 cups of water with some kelp.
2. Add one half a sliced leek and one clove of shredded ginger.
3. Simmer about 5 minutes.
4. Remove the kelp ( If you want to eat the kelp, you should cut it thinly beforehand.)
5. Add salt to taste.
6. Add one beaten egg.

While I was cooking the soup, I toasted a whole clove of garlic for 10 minutes. Before eating it, you should remove the skin.

After my son got out of the bath, he ate the soup and the grilled garlic. He then ate three strawberries and drank a glass of water. It is also important to increase your intake of vitamin C. So, eating an orange instead of strawberries is also good, if you have any.

Before he went to bed, I put a heat pack on his upper back (under the neck) over his clothing. I was careful to ensure he did not sustain a moderate-temperature burn by frequently checking his skin underneath the heating pad.

This morning, I was so relieved to see that his temperature had gone down to 36.7℃. He hadn't taken any *medications, other than this home remedy, prior to his fever breaking.

* Medicine is the study and application of the science of healing.
Medication is a frequently used remedy in medicine.

Hello, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections as always.

My son had a fever, but he had chills. So, it was 'He took a bath until he felt WARM enough.'

Don't you really say 'take a medicine'? I was surprised at your correction about this. My dictionary and school textbooks say this. Do you mean that you call something like tablets medication?

Sakae's Question:

My Reply:

The word 'medicine' is often used in place of the word 'medication'. However, it is incorrect. Medicinal ____ may also be used. Medicine is the study of healing. Medication is the actual liquid, solid, or gas which is used to give positive effects to the person being administered it.

Ex...A person studies medicine to become a doctor. A doctor then prescribes medication to his patient, or, he gives the patient a medicinal poultice to relieve his inflammation.

Also, on the warm bath...you had not mentioned that he had chills. Therefore, the warm bath made no sense. You had to warm him up because he had chills, so, you must mention it. Otherwise, people will think that a warm bath is your remedy for a fever.
