So ladies this might be a bit TMI but I have to ask. I've been sick with the cold for over two weeks and and had taken showers regularly during the first half of it. I came home for the holidays and as soon as my dad found out I was sick he refused to let me take a shower, he said that it would just impede my recovery because I would be exposing myself to the air or something. Well, after not taking a shower for a week and having only wipes, I got sick of it and while my dad was at work today, finally took a shower!! can I tell you? It was orgasmic!!! Feeling the shampoo run through my hair, the warm water rinse off the body wash, I'm never going without a shower ever again! Now the real question, is it ok to shower while you're sick with say the cold or the flu? My parents are really against it because they think that the air outside of the shower will be too cold or something and I'll relapse into sickness (I have asthma so my parents are worry worts sometimes) Plus I feel well now except for a sore throat that I'm having checked on monday, no more headaches, mucus, I only had one real day where I had to lay in bed and that was on friday, but I fell really almost cured *knock on wood* So did I do any damage to my recovery or is it just a myth?
