stifle it, edith.
lukewarm is exactly warmer than your body temp. the definition of lukewarm is if it feels slightly warm to the touch, between 98 and 105 degrees. go look it up.
room temp water is slightly cool to the touch, which i've stated before, and is the maximum temp for a bath or cool compress. or else you might as well just sit in the ROOM TEMP environment that you exist in, and radiate the heat out of your skin naturally.
water increases conductivity, so they help. but any warmer, and you're adding heat to a burn.
ok, i'm done.
where's gb with my milk?
