Drink plenty of water, juices (for the vitamins and the antioxidants), and tea (those made from Linden, Willow Bark, and Black Elder have long been known to have fever reducing properties when served cold).
Instead of taking a bath, use a washcloth or sponge to add moisture to your skin. The evaporation of the water will provide a cooling sensation and encourage your body back to regular temperature levels.
Also cold, wet compresses work well. When the compresses become hot, remove them and start over with fresh, cool compresses.
