”Someone is just recovering from hangover of yesterday after many bottles and glasses of alcohol. They will make a mistake of going into the shower to have a hot water bath. DO NOT DO IT. DO NOT TRY IT. Taking a hot water bath with alcohol in your system can make you drop dead.

IF you have a hangover: NEVER take a steambath or a hot shower. Professional medical opinion is a combination of hot temperature with alcohol in your system can make your heart have an abnormal electrical activity which can lead to sudden death. This is NOT a joke. Tell others.

For the headaches and muscle cramps; Use some paracetamol, 2tablets every six hours for one or two days would really help; For the fatigue and tiredness, Find a sugary food, glucose drink or carbohydrate rich diet like rice that can supply sugar and quick energy; NEVER take aspirin, ibuprofen, piroxicam, or any medication called a “non steroidal anti inflammatory drug” after a hangover. The reason is because these medications can lead to stomach irritation, bleeding from the stomach, liver damage and vomiting of blood.

Pls be careful.
For the thirst and dehydration: Drink lots of water and fruit juice. That supplies you enough fluids to deal with the dehydration. Soda water is also okay. But stay away from caffeine or coffee drinks- there is no compelling proof that it helps with a hangover. It’s a myth.

And finally, When you have a hangover, Do NOT drink more alcohol, it doesn’t solve the problem. It’s a myth. Excessive regular alcohol drinking carries the risk of hangovers, alcohol addiction, obesity, weight gain, liver problems, kidney problems and death.”
