Yet another traditional remedy

Boyboy made me hit the roof when he had a fever last Wednesday which skyrocketed to 39.6 on Thursday.

I think I thank God that he was not with me on Thursday. I feel my babysitter has more experience to really take care of a sick baby!

So apart from Cool Fever, sponging, panadol every 6 hours and lots of water, this was what my babysitter tried to bring down his fever.






It is actually dough made out of flour and egg white. And after which it is rubbed all over baby's body. Supposedly some black dirt is to come out from their back (especially) and other parts of the body. Can't remember the Chinese term for those balck stuff!
But my babaysitter said....he is alright. No black stuff came out from his body. Reckon the only stuff coming out are is poop and the green goo from his nose!

Andrewjune - the traditional method was to cure the fever.

Poor Rachael....try out the nase cleaner from Pigeon/Pureen, rub Vicks on her clothing and the soul of her feet and wear socks, maybe burn some eucalyptus oil before sleeping! hope both of you get to sleep as well!

kathie - will definitely check it out. Anything that works!!!
