    Have you ever placed ice/ice packs on pulse points, like the wrist(s) below the palm of your hand; or ice wrapped in a towel around your neck? I vaguely remember trying the ice on the wrists bit once. Worked surprisingly well.
    If all you are gonna do is give me grief about what I post DON'T READ IT Heh? Have a nice day :-D

    Ask our Dr.

    Wasn't expecting to see a few comment on 105 temp. Dr. made the nurse check it again and yes again 105. She gave me two tylenol and did not let me leave until she was sure it was going down. After about 1/2 hour it went down to 103, after drinking water also. I was not facing death , but yea she was concerned for sure. I just did not take enough tylenol at home, I think I just took 1 and my temp kept floating around 102/103 at the house, that flu was very aggressive. Prescribed me some tylenol of course too.
