Showering during the nine days

Question:

What are the heterim for showering during the nine days for people who sweat a lot like me?

Answer:

If you are uncomfortable to the degree that you feel you need the shower, then it would be permitted to take a cold shower.  You may add a little hot water if it is too cold for you.
