Hand sanitizer only does so much. hmm Unfortunately. Gotta use the hardcore stuff - soap. Regarless, start chugging water and popping a zinc a day when you have a meal. And sleep.

I went through that over xmas.  Keep the fever down with your favorite concoction.. drink lots of fluids and enjoy the bed rest and fever-induced hallucinations!

Also.. if you can help it.. don't get pneumonia like I did a couple years ago.  Pneumonia sucks.

yeah, i got that a few years ago. i think it was due to me trying to beat down the fever as soon as it arrived. two weeks later the fever returned, and i had pneumonia.

this time i'm giving it 48 hours of no fever reducer first. of course, my head feels like an elephant is sitting on it, but i'll deal with it for at least today.

Best thing I ever did was get an electronic thermometer for the medicine cabinet.  Easy to keep track of temp even when completely bug-eyed and I knew to get to a doctor when I hit 105.. 100-102 gives some *amazing* dreams though smile

Feel better!

Ever hear of a hot toddy? It won't cure you but it will certainly make you feel better!

Best wishes on a speedy recover.

Also make sure you are getting enough Potassium with staying hydrated...OJ, bananas, 100% pomegranate juice, etc.
