All that is needed to be done is to secure a cold pack. If you can’t find any, you can make one yourself by placing ice cubes in a plastic container.

Make sure to wrap the plastic container in a towel before you apply it to the patient’s body. You can apply it to the forehead or head area and also to the whole body.

Just make sure to change the cold pack every three hours and to have hot water bottles by the patient’s feet and body side.

Another way to lower down body temperature is for the patient to drink plenty of fluids – water, diluted orange juice or unsweetened lemon water.

You may also add in garlic to water, fruit juices and other liquid food that you will be feeding the patient. Garlic has been known to be significant in treating meningitis.
