I've heard eating or taking a hot shower can temporarily affect body temperature. By how much and how long should I wait after either to take my temp?

I've heard eating or taking a hot shower can temporarily affect body temperature. By how much and how long should I wait after either to take my temp?

This is an: interesting question that I've never heard asked or answered before so I will give you my best educated guess: I would say an hour. It is very possible your temperature will be normal sooner than that, but I would think an hour would allow things to normalize. I can't imagine there is actually any experimental or scientific literature on this question. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Hi, my chest hurts when i breathe. I know its because i took long in a hot shower. Is that ok?

Does not add up: A long hot shower should not make your chest hurt. Your question is not clear and you may wish to restate it.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Wondering if it's bad to take a hot shower if you have poison oak?

Wondering if it's bad to take a hot shower if you have poison oak?

Maybe/maybe not: I can see hot water causing an initial increase in blood flow at your skin surface & intensifying any discomfort/reaction to the rheus antigen. The shower itself is a good idea, since lathering up well with soap should remove the rash triggering chemicals. I would use warm water instead. ...Read more

After a hot shower or blowing my nose, my nose seems to always bleed. It stops after holding my head up. Is that normal?

After a hot shower or blowing my nose, my nose seems to always bleed. It stops after holding my head up. Is that normal?

Can be: This should be checked out by your doctor. Wintertime air is cold and dry and dries the skin inside the nose making it easier to crack and bleed. Most often that can be treated with moisture, like ayr nose gel applied twice a day. A humidifier in your room or added to your furnace could help too. However, there could be other issues that should be checked out first by your physician. ...Read more

Do Janeway leasions fade when pressed on?
I have some strange red spots under soles that are more noticeable after hot shower or sauna

Not Janeway lesions: Janeway lesions are red spots that sometimes occur in persons with bacterial endocarditis. However, they would never be the only symptoms: if you have BE, you would also have fever and probably heart disease symptoms. If you are otherwise well, the red spots are not Janeways. See a doctor if you remain concerned. ...Read more

What could cause tachycardia during and after a hot shower? Lasts for the rest of the day. No dizziness. Is that dangerous or serious?

It is harmless: In a young person, this is not expected to cause any harm. But it is not a good idea to have the temperature of water so high to increase your heart rate. Adjust temperature down to where the water is just comfortable...not too cold but warm to mildly hot. ...Read more

I've had a headache all day I've taken ibprofen and hasn't seemed to help so I took a hot shower and realized I have a trail of three lumps going up t?

What Lumps ? Where.: The story was just getting interesting. Where did you notice the three lumps ? Suspicious lumps need to be seen. Ibuprofen does not always help with every headache. A helpful alternative is an Excedrin type for headache control. To remove all doubt, consult with your primary care physician. ...Read more

My sister gets these itchy red hives after she takes a hot shower. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what it could possibly be and if there is some type of over-the-counter cream or medicine she can use that would help with these.

Try tepid showers: As stated your sister has cholnergic urticaria brought on by the hot showers. Instead of hot showers she might try taking tepid showers instead, i.e. Reduce the temperature of the water. ...Read more

Talk to MD again: I would make sure they not only checked you for clogged arteries but rather to make sure the electricity side of your heart, the part that controls the rate and the rythym is working correctly. Sometimes people where an EKG for a day (Holter monitor) so as to see what is happening when you are not at the office when of course everything feels fine - just like your car at the mechanic. ...Read more

Sudden middle back pain in yesterday, still hurts today. Slightly improved, especially with ibuprofen & hot shower. Is it most likely muscle injury?

Tingling in left heel after hot shower/hot weather.Brain/spine mri shows hernation at t7-t8 with flattening of the left ventricle spinal cord, disc protrusions and spondylolisthesis from L4-S1 causing stenosis. Why do i have the heat sensitivity?

Tingling in left heel after hot shower/hot weather.Brain/spine mri shows hernation at t7-t8 with flattening of the left ventricle spinal cord, disc protrusions and spondylolisthesis from L4-S1 causing stenosis. Why  do i have the heat sensitivity?

Need Neuro exam.: You should see a Neurologist with a copy of the report & (ideally) pictures of the MRI that you underwent. Only a Neurologist can accurately tell you if / why you have heat sensitivity. Usually, heat sensitivity means loss of the ability to tell the difference between hot & cold. The spinal MRI may be misleading. Poor circulation, neuromas, diabetes, & other conditions predispose feet to tingling. ...Read more
