Three treatments of egg whites on the feet using 5 egg whites for the three treatments brought the temperature down from 103 to 101 and 1/2 but only temporarily....for about 2 hours.

Egg white cure for fever.Last night my 11 year-old son had a fever of 101.9. Who wants to be sick, especially during Winter Break and on your parents' 22nd wedding anniversary? He detests taking medication of any sort because of the taste and texture, but will if he absolutely has to. This time he tried to take an Advil and threw up. He refused to try the kids Tylenol Meltaways after that experience, saying he'd rather let the fever go away on its own. So off to google I went and found Earth Clinic. We tried the egg white remedy and the fever started going down after 20 minutes. By the time he went to bed, his fever was down to 99.5. While his fever wasn't cured completely and as quickly as others have written, I will say it sped up the process for recovery. One suggestion: I should have read all the comments before applying the egg whites. Next time, I will put plastic bags over the egg white-soaked bandanas before I put on the two pairs of socks. Some of the egg white slipped out. The plastic bags would have helped. I really appreciate this web site and people's comments.
