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.

There's something about him that makes me think he's full of shit. I dont like him.

Quoting MichelleMc:

Oh & Doctor Oz is an idiot. I would hope I knew if my husband had lice. I mean, come the hell on.

I hate to use a damp towel -- even my own.  Plus, I wouldn't want to potentially wipe my face with the part DH potentially wiped his butt on.  Though DH would use anybody's towel, LOL, don't think he cares.  

I also don't share toothbrush with anybody or drink/eat after anybody.  I am a proud germ-a-phobe!

If we didn't share towels my washer would never quit running. DH showers when he gets ready for work, I shower every other day, and the kids shower every other day. 

You are to be clean when you get out of a shower I do not see the big deal.

Quoting UpsideDown:

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.

He uses my towel all the time. Its not by my own choice though. The only reason why it annoys me is because he leaves it bunched up vs laying flat so it doesn't dry right.


Also, I'm pretty sure if he had lice or something I would get it from sleeping in the same bed as him or any other normal things that couples do..
