I used to take long, hot showers. No more. I still shower, but go more to the warm side than hot to prevent steam from building up. My skin and hair love it better that way anyways! I will never go into a hot tub or sauna ever again, not only to avoid the steam but the last time I went in one, shortly before diagnosis, I broke out in a terrible rash – dr. called it hot tub rash or something like that. The owner of the hot tub had the water tested afterward and it was okay, but of course, the tests were probably minimal and basic. A friend told me later that the same thing happened to her son one time in their hot tub.
