Do Not Touch These 7 Body Parts With Your Bare Hands

Your hands are constantly contaminated by the environment that surrounds you. The hands play a major role in the transmission of germs and when germs are spread to certain delicate human body parts, the result would be infection.

Therefore you should be careful when you touch these body parts:

Face
Don’t touch your face often. Touching the face should be limited to the morning washing, makeup and lubricating with creams. Otherwise, the dust and bacteria on your hands may get onto your face increasing the risk of getting sick. Fingers contain oils that can close the pores, claims dermatology adviser Adnan Nasir.
Don't Touch
Eyes
Avoid touching your eyes with your hands because you can easily insert bacteria in them. If you have an itching sensation consult a doctor instead of rubbing them. He will help you solve the problem.

Mouth
A recent British research showed that people put their fingers in their mouth on average 23.6 times while bored at work. By putting your fingers in your mouth you may send germs in there. A study showed that a third from one third to a quarter of bacteria, that respondents have had on their hands, were found in and around their mouth.

Nose
A study, conducted in 2006 and published in the Journal of Infection control and hospital epidemiology, showed that people who have the habit of putting their fingers in their nose have 51 percent higher risk to have the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus, than those who keep their hands away from the nose.

Skin Under The Nails
If you do not cut your nails regularly, you are increasing the possibility of an increased presence of bacteria, say researchers from the University of Nebraska. Many bacteria from our surrounding, including staphylococci, live under the nails.

If you want perfectly clean nails you should use a brush to remove debris – advises David de Becker, consultant dermatologist at the British dermatological center. Do not dig under your nails because it is very dangerous and it can cause onycholysis i.e. falling or the nail.

Ear Canal
Avoid to scratch your ears using your fingers or any other sharp object because this way you might cause great damage. Putting something in your ears can tear the thin skin that encircles your ear canal – says John Niparko, Doctor and professor in the department of otorhinolaryngology of the School of Medicine at Keck. If you experience a frequent ear itching it is the best to see a doctor rather than trying to solve the problem on your own.

Rectum
“Bacteria hold up in the anus area and they can be a potential danger for our health”- stated Dr. Jared V. Wash your hands thoroughly if you have to touch your buttocks.
