Q: Hello ladies, running a fever since morning btw 99 and 99.6. Had slight cold also in the morning not much now.
Are there any home remedies in pregnancy I can do??
cz my Dr. has advised to avoid medication.
But I'm scared the fever might harm the baby.
Thanx in advance

Boil two large glasses of water with handful of tulsi leaves, little pepper, dry ginger, garlic,cumin seeds, little tea leaves, bit of sugar and reduce to half amount and drink... its very powerful remedy... had it during my pregnancy... tk cr...

Make sure the fever does not cross 100. It's only beyond that level it can cause concern. It's OK to take paracetamol to control the fever and do discuss this with your doctor. Taking a bath with tepid water and also placing cool cloths on your forehead and nape of the neck will help keep fever down.
