My cousin who is staying along suddenly developed fever and cold. Till last night she was fit and we both were together to the market as well yesterday. While there is nothing wrong with me, she developed fever and cold. Also she is feeling cold while the weather is hot

Your friend should go to hospital and get medical attention. Have a nice day.

First you must try to fetch some basil leaves if possible. This is because basil leaves are considered a really good medicine for curing cold and fever.

Yes. But how to consume? Should be eaten raw? Or to be mixed with anything?

Fluids. You can never go wrong with fluids. If you get feavers, even with chills, you dehydrate faster. So make sure to keep the fluids coming.

Not a problem. I don't know what medicines you have access to where you're from, but there are some known feaver reducers, too. I just know fluids are universal and key during illness.@S4mmyboy

Regular salt water gargle with some turmeric in it is a good household treatment. It should be taken at least five times a day. Regular inhalation of steam is also a must. This treatment is supplementary to regular treatment prescribed by the doctor.

@S4mmyboy you have to make it round the clock. Depending on her age, it can be every 4-6 hours

We recommend that you take it to the hospital for further examination, so that it can be treated immediately and recovered, because fever can be contagious.

Yes she recovered, but it took more than a week to be back to normal.

I'd consult a physician or at least ask a pharmacist and not members of a writing site.

Completely agree. Like in fire fighting they teach us to give a try once, on how to extinguish/ contain a fire rather than spreading, before calling in the experts. Similarly some home remedies would help a bit by the time i take her to the clinic. By the way, I took her in the evening when the clinic opened

I remember my parents used to make me tea with raspberry preserves and have me sweat it out.
