My 4 year old daughter had a 103.8 degree temp at 10:08 pm. We wrapped paper towels soaked in 2 egg whites around her feet, then wrapped saran wrap around the paper towels and finished things off with socks on top of everything. It is now 10:55 pm and her temp is 99.9!!!

I was up all night last night with my 15 year old daughter, trying to break her fever. I tried everything I could think of all day today. Tonight I searched for a natural remedy and found your site. I went upstairs about 40 minutes ago and applied the egg whites and covered her feet in baggies and socks. I just went up and took her temperature and it went from 100.9 to 99.6 in that time. After my not being able to lower it all last night and today, this is a blessing! I sat here and prayed after I applied it to her, and my prayers were answered! Thank you for this wonderful site!!

My 4 1/2 year old son had been fighting cough, sore throat and fever... I was able to control his sore throat and cough but feels like his fever is out of control. I could not hold him as he makes me feel too burning hot. and it has been 3 days with a fever. I had tried everything... tylenol, lukewarm bath, etc... and nothing improved and I was skeptical when I read about the egg whites but I didn't really have anything to lose, so tried that and was so surprised that his fever BROKE! Wow... i will definitely keep that in mind for the future fevers. Thanks!!!!!!!

I used egg whites on my sons feet when he had 103.5 fever and it took about 1 minute and his fever dropped to 102.5 after about a 1/2 an hour it went down to 101.5.

Thank you for your website. I tried just about everything to break my sons fever and then I came across your website. I googled in that my son had a temp of 103 and there you were. I would have never thought egg whites for a fever but it worked, within 15 minutes he went from 103 to 100.5. He is sitting up and eating now. It has been 1 hour and he is down to 98.5. Thank you:)

I was at wits end trying to figure out what to do about my husband's persistent fever. He has been sick with the flu for the past six days. His fever has been anywhere from 101 to 103. We tried ibuprofen, Boiron's oscillococcinum, emergen-c, various electrolyte drinks, etc, etc.. Nothing worked. Tonight I got online to discover your thread on egg whites and fever reduction. I told my husband that I intended to try it and he was very sceptical.. However.. We have a six month old baby and I said, Hey.. if nothing else this will give us an idea of what to do if our baby gets a fever! Lo and behold.. After wrapping his feet in egg white soaked paper towels, saran wrap and socks, within one and a half hours, his fever went from 101.3 to 97.9!! I am absolutely convinced (and flabbergasted) that this works. Thanks so much for all of the postings. I am a believer and plan to share this advice with others.. God Bless my dear old Mama.. she had a plethora of old wives remedies and she would have loved this one!

My mother has told this story many times in the last 30 years. When I was about 4 years old I got a severe burn on the inside of my forearm. Apparently, it was a 2nd degree burn as it was evident to her that 2 layers of skin had been burned. My mother immediately applied egg whites mixed with alum to the burn and covered it with gauze. (Alum is usually found on the spice aisle at the grocery store and is used as an ingredient in baking powder, as a crisping agent for pickles and to harden gelatin.) She says that the following day I was outside playing with other children and fell - forearm down on the ground. She was amazed that I immediately got up and began playing again with no indication of any pain from the burn. I'm not sure of the significance of the alum but I'm now 35 years old and, within my memory, there has never been any sign of a scar on my arm.

My Daughter had a Fever Ranging from 102.4-104.2 for 3 days straight we tried tylenol, motrin, advil, feverall, and went to the doctor's office 3 days straight with her even the hospitals emergency room. Nothing would break this cycle of fever. I got really scared and went on the internet to see if i could find some answers, while surfing and praying, i was lead to this site and so I tried it, o.k. why not I checked all options, such as would it harm her in any way, no it won't because it is not ingested. Well, it works after putting the paper towel soaked in egg whites on her feet. You could actually feel the fever being drawn down to the bottom from her body. I would recommend this on anyone especially a infant that can't take all the meds. Thank you so much for sharing this remedy, It Works!!! Thank God!!!

I've been trying to break my fever for three days. I've been hopped up on Ibuprofen and knew my body could not take anymore so i came on here to find a natural "non-medication" remedy. I was really skeptical about the egg white remedy but after reading everyone's comments i figured there was nothing to lose except for maybe some cold slimy feet. As soon as I put it on my feet I felt myself starting to sweat (something I haven't done in days) I'm so excited that this is working for me! thank you again and again

I have to admit, I was really skeptical about this. When I came home today, my 10 year old son had a temperature of 101.9. I looked online and saw this remedy. I talked my son into letting me do it and after an hour, his temperature went down to 99.9. After 2 hours, it was at 98.1!!!! This truly does work!!!!!!!

I was up at 4:00am with my 5 year old daughter, who had a fever of 102. I started looking on the internet and came across this site. I tried the egg whites on the feet to bring down a high fever and it worked. My husband does not belive me, but know after almost 48 hours of a high fever my daughter is back down to normal. Thank you for the information -- it was so helpful.

No Significant Improvement after 50 minutes. After treating my girlfriends illness for a few days with homemade chicken soup, she recovered, but now I have a 100.4 degree fever. I have been using cold compresses for 40 min. I stayed up all night and I figured it was time to find an online remedy. I cracked two eggs, yolk and white, into two separate plastic grocery bags and tied them around my feet; then putting on my socks at 8:23 AM I waited. Now it is 8:33 and my temperature is 100.4;no change. Moving my feet and toes should circulate the eggs and allow the cooler part of the egg to mix with the warmer parts and average out the temperature so the temperature of the egg actually touching my feet is lower. A greater differnece in temperature between the eggs and the feet will produce a faster temperature drop between the eggs and the feet. This should lower the fever more by drawing the heat away from the head reapidly. Now it is 8:43 AM and my temperature is 100.0. After 20 minutes my temperature dropped 0.4 degrees. My girlfriend is pushing at all sorts of typical remedies like placing a bag of frozen vegetables on my belly and taking a couple of aspirin. Now at 8:53 my temperature is 100.2. After 30 minutes my temperature is down 0.2 degrees. At 9:03 AM my temperature is 100.0 degrees. After forty minutes my temperature is down 0.4 degrees. At 9:13 my temperature is 100.2 degrees. There has been no significant change in my temperature.

My 5 year old has had a fever off and on for the past 2 days, tonight at about 11:00 it topped out at 103.4, I gave her motrin, a cool bath, made my poor baby basically freezer her hiney off like they do at the hospital,and nothing was working, after doing all of the above, the lowest it had gotten down to was 102.6, so I got online and came across this site, I had never heard of this rememdy before, everthying else I came across, I had already done, or it just sounded a little to "out there" to try. I read what this site had to say, read the feedback, and thought, "what the hey, the only thing I go to lose is my daughters fever". By 1:08 a.m. her tempature was 102.8, it had started to rise again, I had put the egg soaked paper towels on her feet, a bag over each and then her socks by 1:11 a.m.. By 1:30 I checked her tempature again and it had gone down to 99.8, talk about relief, it is now 1:48, and I just checked her tempature again, I am glad to say that it 98.8, in a matter of minutes her fever that I had been battleing for 2 days now, was gone, and she's sleeping nicely. Thank you so much...

My Italian boyfriend gets really high fevers once a year. He doesn't take medicine so when he hit 103.5 I found this great remedy!He was dubious("it will smell!")but gave in- and his fever dropped in about 30 minutes! Great remedy, I've been telling everyone about it-Italians seem to be prone to fevers (even the slightest ones)-so I think it will be a popular remedy here soon!
