Steam can help you alot as it clears the airways, you probably vaporized most of the germs which were gathering in your throat, beware, sitting in a hot tub for too long can also be bad for you.

I know this is kind of a weird way to do this, but last night I was sure I was coming down with something. I could feel it in the throat, and nose. I sneezed a few times as well. Additionally I had done a bunch of physical work throughout the day, and I thought it would be good on the old muscles to sit in the hot tub for a while last night. Well when I woke up this morning I wasn't sick at all (like I predicted I would be). I wonder if it is possible that being in the hot tub, which is at 104 degrees simulated having a fever, and that killed off the virus (which assumably could not handle the heat)? THoughts?
