I have the flu....it's awful. Starting last night, the nausea hit. I noticed my fever spiked to 102.8 when I got sick. So, I had the brilliant idea to cool myself. Mind you, when I got sick I was sweating, my hair was sticking to my neck (I got myself a hat to keep my hair from getting in the way). Is it alright to use an ice pack on your head with fevers? Motrin IB and fever reducers are no longer working. When I get too hot, I get sick. The ice pack feels SO good, but if it's hurting me, I'll stop it and deal with paying homage to the porcelain goddess.
