In my line of work I'm in a retail situation where customers cough on me...and me frightened of the flu scared by fake news about the flu....no matter how much hand sanitizer I used....joke....what does one wart on a human say to another wart on a human? "Look what I've got!" ...."Eeks" says the other.... "Get a load of what's growing on me!" Sorry, C E, I'm a little out of my head.

Too much hand sanitizer plus holding your breath every time a customer comes near you will cause that. Hope you get well soon.

I used to always get sick after using hand sanitizer. Odd, huh? Now, working in an office environment, I refuse to touch it and haven't been sick since - at least 4 years, maybe 5. Vitamin D, a good diet, don't touch your hands to your face/eyes/ears/nose when you've been around public areas are your best defenses.

Proper handwashing is most important, along with what you mentioned. Thirty seconds of vigorous rubbing, (The type of soap generally doesn't matter, the vigorous rubbing does) especially around the fingertips and nails, between the fingers. Before and after meals, before and after coffee breaks, before and after bathrooms breaks. Clean your keyboard and mouse, phone, doorknobs, steering wheel, keys, kitchen counter top.

And most important...visit the horses at least once a day! :)

One person at work makes fun of me because I'm wary of germs and am not shy with the sanitizer. Please explain visit the horses, you mean gambling? Visit the horses ....I don't have a horse.

Yes, maybe... I got sick after I put hand sanitizer on my lips. Hummm. I never touch my body at work.....maybe I should have waited 60 sec with the hand sani on my hands before I sanitized my lips. No time to kill the germs😄 I thought a customer spittled on my lips. Still will use hand sani, not on the lips. Thanks though.

The trick is not to touch your face. We as humans touch our face more times in a day than we even realize. Also, sanitizers are not made equally! Years ago I read that bath and body hand sanitizer was rated for killing the most germs and haven't switched since. Also, clorox wipes are helpful. The truth is that people just need to learn how to stay home when they are sick, less people would be infected. Hope you feel better soon!

The only time I got flu was after having a flu jab. Never had one since and haven't had flu. Not saying it's best practise to avoid them, they've probably saved many lives, but just personal experience. I've found whisky and cigarettes ward off most evil bug spirits. Not a recommendation either. Just personal experience, and dreadfully un-PC.

Another good tip. When I enter a store, cafe, e.g. If there are double doors, i open and go in and out the left one. Since most ppl use the right one, the left door handle has less germs. Also, if a door is push to open, i use my arm not my hand.
