Can I take aspirin for a fever?

It is generally inadvisable to use aspirin or Tylenol to suppress a fever. Fevers are one of the body’s self-healing mechanisms and actually help your body to fight infection. As long as your temperature is not too high it is healthier to let nature take its course.

While you are sick it is important to take care of yourself in order to aid your healing process. If you feel quite unwell it is wise to go to bed and stay there! Rest and sleep as much as possible. Drink plenty of fluids (water or fruit juices) and eat only if you feel hungry. A light diet (fruit and vegetable soups etc.) will give your digestion a rest and help your body to recover faster too.
