My dear son recently had a fever of 102-104. I bathed him in luke warm water and also rubbed peppermint essential oils on the bottom of his feet and also dabbed it on his forhead.
It seemed to really help.

i did make my dh go take a lukewarm shower but it made him shiver. his temp is about 101.5 which is not extremely high, but he does not seem to be tollerating it well. he felt like he was kind of nauseus, but did not throw up almost anything at all which is surprising since we were at a birthday bruch in the afternoon and he ate quite a bit (he did not feel really sick then, so we thought it was just a light cold). a cold washcloth on his forehead only relives a little bit. so he just finally broke and took tylenol. i am not a fan of it, but he just could not get comfortable no matter what and he neds to be able to fall asleep. it's almost midnight here, so I have nowhere to go to ask for anything else.

any other tips for me?

thanks

Homeopathic Belladona can ease some fever symptoms.

Aconite, Belladona, and Ferrum Phos are the three main fever remedies.
You will have to look up to distinguish the symptoms.
I can try and post more later to help with this if you still need it.

thanks a lot for your support. my dh is doing much better today. his temperature is only slightly higher then normal, nothing to be concerned about.

i guess it is time for me to go get some homeopathy books.
in 3 years we've been married none of us was ver sick even once (thank g-d), so i never had to deal with anything like this before.

I know you may not need this anymore, but Catnip tea can be helpful in reducing fever. If you are breastfeeding then you can drink it and pass it on, or you can make a tea for your little one.
A great resource is "Kids, Herbs and Health" by Linda White and Sunny Mavor.

For good homeopathic books look up anything by Miranda Castro (Homeopathy Mother and Baby), or Andrew Lockie (Family guide to Homeopathy).
Any ailment that comes on suddenly can indicate Aconite. Aconite is the first remedy to use at the onset of symptoms. After that you can use another one if it doesn't act. It should act pretty quickly. One does not usually use Aconite in the middle or end of an illness.
Belladona is indicated for heat, redness, pain...

The best thing I have found for fevers is Pennyroyal baths.

take several ounces of dried pennyroyal and steep for 20 minutes. Strain and dump liquid into lukewarm tub.

It will smell very eucolypsosy (sp?). It helps reduce fever, helps body to rehydrate and helps with congestion.

Great stuff.
