Will a hot bath make a migraine worse? Too hot, and it will make your head pound (unless you’re one of those lucky people whose migraines are relieved by hot water). Too cold and your muscles will tense up, potentially worsening the attack.

Can a hot bath trigger a migraine? Hot bath-related headache is a benign headache unassociated with a structural lesion. We describe three cases of women with hot bath-related headache who reported that their severe paroxysmal headaches were provoked by pouring hot water over themselves or by soaking in a hot bath.
Why do hot baths help with migraines? Unlike a bottle of medicine or special creams, hydrotherapy fights the source of headaches rather than covering up the headache symptoms. The warm water of a hot tub will help to relax your muscles and ease tension, allowing you to gain back independence from debilitating headache pain.
