Hi Dr Anderson:

Just wanted to say thank you again and ask a quick question. What is good for cold chills (besides sweater)....Is hot shower ok or asking for pneumonia?

Many thanks. Margo

Always happy to help!

For chills, bundling up is good. A hot shower is ok, but then the water/moisture, will cause you to get cold again. Warming yourself up inside with warm or hot herbal tea is also helpful.
