MUST READ: Don’t Touch These 7 Parts Of Your Body With Your Hands

MUST READ: Don’t Touch These 7 Parts Of Your Body With Your Hands

1. Your face: You can use your hands to wash your face or apply skincare products, aside that, keep your hands away. When you rest your hands on a surface with germs and then use it to touch your forehead, it increases your likelihood of getting sick and breaking out too.

2. Your ear canal: You should never stick your fingers or anything else in your ears as this can tear the thin skin that lines the ear canal. If you feel an itching sensation in your ears, see an otolaryngologist rather than trying something DIY (Do It Yourself).

3. Your eyes: You can easily introduce germs into your eyes, so unless you’re putting in contacts or washing away a particle that found its way into your peepers, keep your hand away

4. Your mouth: In a landmark study published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology, a third to a quarter of germs tested transferred from study subjects’ fingers to their mouths. Also, there are thousands of saliva droplets that contain millions of viruses in a typical cough or sneeze. When you cover your mouth with your hands, the virus lands in your palm and its easily transferred to everything you touch.

5. The inside of your nose: In a 2006 study of ear, nose, and throat patients published in the journal Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, nose pickers were 51 percent more likely to carry Staphylococcus aureus bacteria in their schnozzes than those who kept their hands off. Try not to pick your nose. If your nose is dry, try coating it with an emollient protective barrier such as petroleum jelly or beeswax.

6. Your butt: Wiping and washing aside, don’t pick your butt. Just don’t. “The anus does contain bacteria that could potentially be harmful,” says Jared W. Klein M.D., Ph.D., medical director of the after care clinic at Harborview Medical Center. After you poop or touch your butt for any other reason, wash your hands thoroughly.

7. The Skin under Your Nails:Lots of nasty bacteria, including staph, can live there. “Picking tends to create trauma in its own right and then any bacteria or yeast can cause further problems sometimes resulting in a pattern called onycholysis, where the nail lifts off the nail bed,” says David De Berker, MRCP, consultant dermatologist at the British
