Emerson's currently sick & last night her fever spiked to103.7 & she was maxed out on fever reducers. Feeling desperate, I remembered an article I read suggesting onions could draw down a fever, & figured it was worth a shot.
I simply cut the onion in half, put the cut side on the bottom of her feet, & covered her feet with socks to keep the onions in place. Within 15 minutes E's fever was down to two degrees & her room smelled like a burger joint.
Of course this remedy requires a compliant patient; not one who freaks out & pulls off the sock/onion combo within a half an hour. Regardless, if you're looking for a fast, natural way to draw down a fever, try the onion method. It definitely seemed to work.
