Everyone has that one friend who can't touch a door knob or paper towel dispenser in the bathroom without reaching immediately for that mini bottle of hand sanitizer they have in their purse, hand bag or pocket.
Maybe, that person is you.
In any event, keeping germs at bay during the next few months is paramount for the masses, particularly in the midst of cold and flu season and with the Ebola scare summoning more attention and eyes as patients get diagnosed one after another on a much to regular basis.
Staying flu or cold free isn't always the easiest task but not for the reasons you might believe. Of course, you have more than just a handful of people who really don't pay much attention to the big (or little) things they can do to stay safe as it relates to getting sick.
The opposite end of the spectrum are those who work a little too diligently at it. Even though that behavior sounds more full proof than foolish, take hand washing for example. The idea that you should be scrubbing your hands every chance you get is smart but not to the point where it becomes excessive. Your immune system has to be prepared to battle at least some germs, so ridding yourself of everything every time puts that same immune system in jeopardy of essentially being defenseless since it hasn't been accustomed to seeing anything dangerous in its path relatively speaking.
