What Part of the Body Gets the Most Hot?

The Journal Gazette of Fort Wayne, Ind., says that the head, chest, and armpits are the warmest parts of the body. On the other hand, the feet and toes are the coldest parts because they are farthest from the heart, which pumps warm blood.

Health Guidance says that even though the body’s internal temperature stays the same, the skin’s temperature can rise due to vigorous exercise or warm weather. In each case, if the person goes to a cool place to rest, their blood vessels will narrow, forcing blood inward and lowering the temperature of their skin. Fever is another thing that raises the temperature of the skin.
