7 personal items you know you shouldn’t share but do anyway
Let’s settle this once and for all; you don't have to share everything.
Whether it’s with your closest sister or boyfriend/girlfriend, your relationship won’t prevent you from possible infections and diseases.
Here are 7 personal items that you know you shouldn’t share but do anyway.
A toothbrush carries a lot of bacteria with it and sharing it with someone tends to increase the number of bacteria entering your body system. There’s also that other scary fact that you could get HIV or any other disease if the bristles have touched the wound of an infected person.
As harmless as it may seem, sharing a towel with someone else can lead to the spreading of infections such as gonorrhea.
Sharing underwear can expose one to transferring vaginal infections – for women. It can also encourage the spread of getting pubic lice – yeah, it’s a thing.
The roll-on deodorant should never be shared, seeing that it comes into direct contact with someone else’s skin. Sharing deodorants can lead to the transfer of skin cells, hair and bacteria which when in excess can lead to infections or diseases.
Sharing earphones doubles the number of bacteria in your ears thus leading to an ear infection.
Sharing nail cutters can lead to the spread of infections such as athlete’s foot, bacterial infections and even hepatitis.
