Hard to answer: Body temperature raised as result of exposure to the heat can run the whole range of treatments: if it is a small fever, say under 102, without other symptoms: get into shade, cool area, hydrate a lot. If other symptoms/higher temp involved, hydration is imperative, cool the neck, armpits, groin area and possibly seek med attention. If heat stroke, it is a 911 emergency, the younger the worse!

Please suggest what foods should I eat to treat my fever?

Fluids: There are no foods to 'treat' a fever. Fever is not a disease, it's just a symptom. You need to treat whatever illness you have to make the fever go away. However, since when you have a fever, your body goes through more fluids, you need to increase fluid intake. And that does not include alcohol or caffeine containing drinks as these dehydrate you more.

Antipyretics: If you truly have a fever then you can take either Ibuprofen or acetaminophen, but you may also have hot flashes for other reasons which may need further investigation.

Fever: Keep a diary for two weeks and write down your activities. You may find that you are drinking hot coffee or tea. Hot soups or food may be the culprit
