Virus? Fever? Then avoid NSAID

Here is windy video about avoiding certain pain relievers if you have a fever that might be related to a virus. He pretty much says it all in the first 2 minutes and then goes on and on.

Re: Virus? Fever? Then avoid NSAID

Heck, that ought to be common sense. When I was kid 60,70 years go, first thing mom did was get out the (mercury) thermometer if kid was complaining or sneezing, coughing. I still do that. Since this SARS broke out, I've been taking temp twice a day (unless I forget). Started doing that and self-isolating from family and friends when I got back from a trip to Philippines at the beginning of February. Told 'em: "Hi, I'm back again OK. See you in a couple of weeks".

Re: Virus? Fever? Then avoid NSAID

Was not obvious or common sense to me. Advil brings down fevers- but not to do this isn't taught in school at least it wasn't for me. Interesting info thanks for sharing.

Re: Virus? Fever? Then avoid NSAID

Feed a fever they say....hot bath, dress warm, sweat it out that night. Ibuprofen 800 helps
in case, time to dig into a 3 yr old stash of antibiotics

Cant help but wonder about the effect on the election, what if this was all a big hoax by the Dems?!

Definitely a hoax by the Dems. Who else would kill all those folks in Italy? They did all this in another country so that the US government could not stop it.

Exactly. It's asinine comments like Coronavirus is a hoax that make me completely avoid this site some days. Good grief people, this is a CAR website, if you didn't read the URL. Tinfoil hats wear better on the Alex Jones conspiracy forum.

Re: Virus? Fever? Then avoid NSAID

When our fevers would get real high my dad would spray us down with rubbing alcohol.

When our fevers were up but not high he would leave it alone saying that's how the body fights enemy's...

According to a news report there is no proof that Ibuprofen is a problem.
