What is the best way to handle my germ phobia?

I hate germs and am scared of them.


Answer by  mooman2679 (1018)

Your best bet would be to wash your hands very often. You could try to have someone help you so you don't feel as afraid. Germs are really everywhere and your skin is what protects you from them. However, you are probably best to take showers more often and wash your hands whenever you can.

Everywhere we are, every object that you've seen or come in contact, has germs. Most germs are harmless. As long as you keep clean, there is no need to worry.
