I hear that using warm/hot water for bathing increases the nervous tension. This can lead to lots of problems as you may know. Do you use hot water to take bath? What do you feel about using hot water for bathing?

I do not use a water heater when taking a bath. The temperature of the water is as is whenever I take a bath. When the water is cold, I would still be using it. I can tolerate the cold temperature by jumping at the bathroom sometimes.

I am not sure about the good or bad side of hot water in this regard.But I had heard that hot water could lead to stomach upset. Generally I use tap water for bathing,which is cold to some extent.But during the winters I use a bit warm water.I warmed it by keeping it in sun for hours.

I would be careful using too hot water if you have heart problems or blood pressure problems. I like a hot, not scalding, bath. Here in Japan people flock to the hot springs as the water contains minerals that are susposed to be good but I always found them far too hot. Jacks

It is suggested to have a bath with hot water because hot water works as an antiseptic which opens up pores of the skin for ventilation and it works as a disinfectant. There is No harm and actually good.

I really do not know the medic side of it but for me a hot bath is definitely relaxing ... a warm water bath is freshening , i usually bath in warm water in the morning but at evening or so will take a hot water bath
