Hot or cold cloth for Flu headache?
Hi everyone. I have come down with the flu/headcold. I have run a temp of about 100.4 since this morning. I have had a terriable headache! So much pressure, congestion, body aches, chills you name it. Got it down to 99.8 right now. But my head is throbbing.. my question is when you have a throbbing headche in this condition should I use a hot or cold cloth on my head to relieve the pain?? Not sure which way to go with this. Will the heat make the blood flow more there and make it hurt more? Or would it relieve it? Maybe the cold would be better. Any thoughts? Thanks!
