Doctor Oz spoke about three things you should never share your husband or anyone else for that matter. You can catch jock itch, staph infections or ring worm by sharing towels, a brush or a razor. Dr Oz explained how to prevent these infections: 3 Things to Never Share

Never Share Towels - Jock Itch Fungus

Dr Oz said to never share towels, and this has nothing to do with the towels being wet. By sharing towels with your husband, you can catch Jock Itch fungus. Towels are the most common way to spread fungi. If you get Jock Itch, Dr Oz said you should try Antifungal Jock Itch Cream.

Never Share Razor Blades - Staph Infection

Doctor Oz said you should never share razor blades with your husband, because you can spread Staph Infection, which can be deadly if it gets under your skin. If you get a Staph Infection, use a Triple Antibiotic Cream to reverse it. If you absolutely must share a razor, dunk the razor in alcohol between people to minimize the risk of spreading infections.

Never Share Hair Brush - Ring Worm Fungus

Dr Oz said you should never share a hair brush, because you can get a circular rash called Ring Worm Fungus, in addition to lice. If you get ring worm, you can use an anti-fungal cream, but it is best to avoid ring worm.

I think Doctor Oz is showing how dumb he really is, you can catch Jock itch by sex too. So um,  ya know, if you are worried about his towel, guess you aren't having sex? Things you should never share, genitals is more like it.

I don't share a towel with anyone. Not my husband or my kids. If one of them uses my towel, I have to get a clean one. I just can't do it. Grosses me out. I've always been like that.

Um...no.  I realize that when you get out of the shower you are clean, but no.  Everyone has their own towel.

Yeah... Exactly.

Quoting MichelleMc:

Of course? Who wouldn't? It isn't like I am wearing his socks AFTER he just wore them?

How could you have sex with someone & couldn't share their towel? How odd?

We have when it was the last clean towel. I'm not worried about catching anything from him. I have sex with him for Christ sakes.

Will be married 14 yrs in a few weeks, what haven't I shared with my DH ? And I would know if he had lice or a staff infection or jock itch ..... We don't label towels nor color code, so who knows which one is whose.

I have in a pinch but it's not something I do on a regular basis. I don't share any of the other stuff though.
