Sauna and steam baths are not advisable for people with heart disease and respiratory diseases. So if you dont have these, i guess you can use it. Afterall it gives a nice refreashing feeling once you come out of it.

I have a bad case of the flu. I have been in bed three straight days. I am starting to feel a little better however a took a steam today in my home steam room and afterwards I noticed hundred of pimple type bumps on ,y back. I have never had this before. Could I possibly have chickenpox. The bumps are only on my back. I was in the US Coast Guard and I thought I was immunized against just about everything? I m actually starting to feel much better but the bumps are still present and are rather itchy.
