I've always been told it's fine - it can't raise your core temperature enough to be a problem. I've used one for various things all the way through (32+5 now).

Yeah - it's completely different from (say) a sauna as you only apply it to one bit so it doesn't overheat the whole body. Like you could use a facial steamer or foot spa, but not sit in a steam room, according to most guidelines.
