Next time your child has a fever, put apple cider vinegar onto some socks and put them on your child. Wrap their feet in a towel and the fever will come down.

I am sorry, but I don't believe putting socks that are soggy with vinegar on your child and then wrapping their feet in a towel is going to do anything for the fever. Nor do I think it would be comforting. You want to use some children's Tylonal and perhaps a cool bath to soothe the fever. We have universal healthcare, and I am sure that there is some sort of phone in line that will give you good advice for short term care of a sick child. If the fever persists, go to your doctor, a walk in clinic, or even emergency. We live in Canada. Health care is covered.
When fever reaches a high temperature, it is so alarming. We may use water to help lower the temperature. But, don't you know that vinegar can be applied too? It lowers the temperature much faster than when we used water. Every 5 minutes, apply it the person who is sick, or until the temperature lowers. We used a face towel to wipe under the armpits and on the forehead. This is very safe and effective.
