since being on immune supressors I am really careful about
washing my hands before I touch my eyes, mouth area, etc. and before I eat.
This past winter my husband had 3 colds and my sister had 5 bad colds. I only had one case of the sniffles that did last 3 weeks but that is all.
I'm not some crazy handwasher or germophobe, I just really made sure to wash my hands before I did anything that involved carrying germs into my mouth and eyes. My sister and my husband are always on the go and they dont realize that the lunch they are eating on the go and they did not wash their hands is carrying all the germs they touched since they last washed their hands.
Beth, 32 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
