- Avoid taking a hot or prolonged shower/bath as this dilates your blood vessels, thereby increasing symptoms. Finishing your shower with cool water may help.
- Sit on a stool by the sink and in the shower.
- Dry shampoo spray and wet wipes may be an option on a bad day.
- Drink a glass of fluid before and after showering.
