Not sure if regular rubbing alcohol is considered a natural cure but take a glass bowl and fill it up with cold water and then add ice cubes to the bowl of water and then take one cup or half the bottle a regular old rubbing alcohol that you can buy at the grocery store, I think it's like 70% isopropyl alcohol and add that to the bowl of water and ice cubes. Take some washcloths, probably like 3 to 5 of them, add them to the bowl of ice water and alcohol solution, then ring out the washcloth so they're not sopping wet and then add them depending on severity of temperature of fever add washcloth to high up on the inner thigh right where your thigh meets your pelvic bone area.

Then take two more washcloths from the from the bowl of water alcohol solution, ring them out slightly, and then place them under the underarms and then take the 1 remaining washcloths and place it on the forehead.

If fever still hasn't broke within 5 to 10 minutes, add more ice cubes to the water and quite a bit more rubbing alcohol to the bowl of solution washcloth and place them back on to the areas mentioned above. Continue till fever breaks, which should be quick but no longer than 30 minutes. I believe it almost every time guaranteed to break any fever. I've seen it work multiple times on different people ages ranging from 2 - 50 plus years old and it worked every time with fevers ranging from mild to severe 106 temp. And it worked almost instantaneously.

Gail,

[NAY] 02/07/2007: Gail from Columbus, OH writes: "I put egg whites on two face clothes and placed the egg white portion on the bottoms of my son's feet then covered with socks and a bath towel. There has been no change in his temperature in 45minutes. This did not work for us. Looking for another remedy,"

Use Regular rubbing alcohol. Rub over chest. 70% rubbing alcohol should work just fine. I've tried this on my 11 year old daughter and it brought her tempature down and kept it down! This is what they used in the good old days! It works!
