After aspirin, emergency cooling measures are the most popular gestions. The liquids are tough to top because splashing on something cool water, alcohol, even vinegar increases evaporation from the skin and as a result, cools the body.

Evaporation cools the blood as it passes close to the surface of the body, particularly in those places where your pulse can be felt easily, like the wrists, armpits, groin and forehead. You would have more success cooling your body by putting some sort of liquid on those places than if you would put some on, say, your abdomen, where is a lot of fat in between the liquid and the blood flow.

Sweating
Sweating will bring your body’s temperature down, but when you have a fever, but once you start to sweat, you should come out from under the blankets and actually wipe off the sweat. If you remove the sweat by drying off, you make more room for fluids to come out and evaporate

Hot tea
