    I always take a shower. If I get too tired I'll sit on the floor of the shower for awhile then get back up. :)

    Take a shower AND THEN a bath!
    This way, you clean yourself in the shower, and then kill all those nasty germs in the bath! This way you won't soak in all that filth that's built up while you were sick (YUCK!)

    Sometimes, a hot bath can force that fever to break.

    At some point in the day, but don't go out of my way to have one. I'd rather sleep.

    thats not true. i shower all the time when im sick and i usually feel better. its not going to hurt you. i work at a hospital and patients take showers all the time there. also it depends on whats wrong with you. i have taken a steamy shower wheni have a cold it helps also used to give my kids baths when they were sick.

    I love baths, even when I am not sick, mostly because I am too lazy to stand.

    Most of the time I take a shower. When I don't feel well there is nothing better than a nice hot bath.

    The house I used to own had the best for that type of thing a real old BIG cast iron tub with brass hardware that was cut or contoured so the back of the tub where you could rest your head had a rise to it and you just sank deep into it. You could get the water nearly hot enough to be steaming it was a guaranteed hangover cure or if you were trying to get the best of a cold or flu. The only thing I really miss about that house, now I have this pathetic little newer style tub not fit for a proper soaking bath.

    If I do not feel well I am usually running a temperature so I will usually take a cool shower.
