    Wash yourself with a small towel dipped in water and a little soap. Just do the best you can. I hope you recover soon.

    Have a thorough strip wash.

    After you shower you would feel like you are re-born again.  But if your sickness prevents you from doing so, at least, use wet wipers if you have if not, use a small towel with some baking soda (that will take the bad smell away and it will clean you) or/and soap, and clean your **5 continents** armpits, pvt parts, front and back, feet and mouth.  After you ''feel better'' you may shower regularly.  GOD BLESS YOU

    Take a shower anyway. Why go around stinking? Who said you can't take a shower when you're sick? It's not going to change anything and certainly not going to make you sicker. In fact, you might feel somewhat better and refreshed after a shower.

    There's not much that could keep you from a shower or warm bath.  Get out while you've got hot water and dry off well and get dressed. If you're a man, and feel well enough to do it, shave your face--or not.  After you've dressed and warmed up well dress warm and walk around the block or just down the street and back.  (Take the dog, if you've got one.)  If you can do a walk, you'll feel better.

    You can’t have shower because you’re sick or you don’t have water? Showering when sick is a good thing to practice actually, the steam will open up your pores, clear your sinuses for a little and make you feel a little better even if it is only temporary

    No reason you can't take a shower just because you're "sick", unless you had surgery and have stitches

    Never heard of an illness that prevents a bath or shower. You can certainly take a sponge bath.

    What do  you have that you can't take a shower.  Chicken Pox is about the only thing I can think of that gets worse if you get wet.  

    I have always showered when I need to even when sick.

    Avoid getting your hair wet.  Make sure the room is warm.  Use warm water.  Don't spend too long in the shower.  When you are done, dry off completely and put warm clothes on.

    Getting wet or getting cold is not what causes sickness.  Germs, viruses, and bacteria causes sickness.  There is nothing about taking a shower that should make anything worse.
