Health can hurt, if you do not observe the rules of hygiene of hands

Through dirty hands passed many diseases, intestinal infections and influenza. And if you touch the dirty hands of the person — problems can arise with the skin. About this in Facebook wrote acting Minister of health Suprun, Recalling that today is world clean hands day.

According to the doctor, and keep your hands clean, just soap and water. Bacteria can become resistant to that than they kill.

“Moreover, some antiseptics are toxic not only to bacteria but also to people. They can even affect the hormonal system — triclosan has estrogen-like effect. Besides antiseptic sprays do not eliminate dirt. This is a good commercial move, which forces people to buy a variety of tools that are supposedly able to kill bacteria and to fully replace water and soap. Against flu virus antibacterial wipes also don’t have power,” adds the doctor.

Don’t forget to wash your hands be sure to:

— after returning home from the street;

— before, during and after cooking;

— before and after patient care;

— after you cough, sneeze, blowing nose,

— after visiting the toilet;

— after contact with animals.
