Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff

For the pain and fever of mesenteric lymphadenitis, have your child:

  • Get plenty of rest. Adequate rest can help your child recover.
  • Drink fluids. Liquids help prevent dehydration from fever, vomiting and diarrhea.
  • Apply moist heat. A warm moist washcloth applied to the abdomen can help ease discomfort.
