First, ANSWER: No. If you take a bath with a fever, make sure

the H2O is atleast room temp. No colder. Dangers of taking a cold

bath with a high temp include systematic shock, seizure (due to

rapid change in body temp), bradycardia (slow heart rate) from

vagal response, and I */believe but am not 100% sure/* a

possibility of going into V-Tach/V-Fib (lethal cardiac rhythm).

Second off, an Aneurysm is /NOT/ a blood clot. And

Emboli/Embolus (Stationary) or Thrombi/Thrombus (Moving) are blood

clots. An Aneurysm is a weakened section of an Arteries wall, which

can cause a 'ballooning' out of that vessels wall. Commonly seen in

the brain and on the Aorta (the main artery in the body).

Causes of an aneurysm can be chemical consumption

(Alcohol/Drugs/Nicotine), poor diet, to birth defects and poor


Just because you have an Aneurysm does not mean you are going to

die. If the aneurysm RUPTURES, then there is a very good chance you

will die.

Third: No, if you have a fever >101 oF, you do not have to

immediately go to the ER. Go to an urgent care clinic or your

regular family physician. If you have a fever >103/104 oF, then

you should consider Emergency Medical care. Please note: You can

take Anti-pyretics for fevers. Motrin (tm), Tylenol, etc. Then work

wonders for fevers. Guess what, that's what the ER is more than

likely going to do for you.

Danger for the fever comes in when you get above that 103/104

-OR- when your fever come on RAPIDLY (<30-60min). IE: Your temp

is 98.7 and within an hour you shoot up to 102. If this occurs you

will more than likely have a febrile seizure.

There is no correlation between the two. Aneurysms are a blood clot

that lets go on it's own accord and can hit the heart, lung or

brain. For some reason Aneurysms have been increasing in teens in

the last 10 years. This may be due to drug or alcohol abuse, but

doctors are shocked at the rise.

There is no correlation between taking a bath during fever and

having an aneurysm which is a blood clot that can decide to move on

it's own and hit the lungs, heart or brain. When anyone has a high

fever of more that 101 they should go to a clinic or ER ASAP.
