I take hot showers to exfoliate my skin with cleanser while using wash cloth. But I'm getting wisdom teeth talking out. What do I do?

In brief: No change

Your shower routine should have no effect on your wisdom tooth surgery.
You may want to stay away from the hot shower several days after surgery just to lower the chance of excessive bleeding. As always get advice from your surgeon.
