Hot water pipe #green

I think there is a hot water pipe under the floor in the bathroom that also extends into the living room area (this is an efficiency apartment), where I sleep. When I woke up I noticed towards the foot of my sleeping bag (I sleep flat on the floor on an opened up sleeping bag because of my back) the rug was actually hot in that spot and it corresponded with the hot spot in the vinyl floor in the bathroom so I surmised the above. I now have to change the area where I sleep and I have moved to an east-west orientation to avoid this but still am only about 3 feet away from this hot water pipe. (i.e. the edge of my body measured a horizontal distance from it). Is this far enough away? I know water lines under your body can actually do real damage.
