Is is safe to take a hot bath with a fever?

Weell, I do, and I'm not dead yet. When I have a fever, I really start to shiver, so a warm bath usually makes me feel better. But if you're fever's too high, then I suggest not to.

It depends on how high the fever is, and what exactly you mean by 'hot' bath. If you are running a fever of 1-3 degrees Fahrenheit, a bath would be fine as long as the water temperature is not higher than your body temperature. Measure the temperature of the water to make sure teh temperature is not too high. Fevers up to 102 degrees Fahrenheit are considered a good thing for fighting infection. If your body temp is 102 or higher you should definitely not take a hot bath. Fevers of 103 and higher put a person at risk of organ damage if the fever remains at that level too long.

A warm bath is good. It will help your blood vessels to dilate and get rid of excess heat. Do not use ice weater or ice packs. It will make your blood vessels constrict and retain the heat, not letting temperature fall. A bath will help you to feel fresh and clean.

A lot of information on fever is available at http://ailments.in/fever.html

No it is not SAFE, Don not take a hot bath during a high fever, it will make you fever rise------------- The best thing to do is to get a bowl of ice put cold water in it, get a wash cloth put it in the ice water and apply it to your forehead and the back of your neck-or- get some zip lock baggies fill them with ice and put them in your arm pits.............NO HOT WATER.................

no not really it needs to be luke warm

You really should not take a real hot bath with a fever, you need to make it luke warm. Your fever may rise if the bath is hot.

Yes but it depends on the type of fever. If you have a fever where you have "the chills", a hot bath will help and sometimes break the fever.

I also use a heating pad when I rest from a fever. This breaks it also.

I did this a couple of days ago and I am fine. (101.2)
