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.

We share everything and have for almost nine years. We have never contracted anything because of it. TV has a way of over dramatizing things.

I have never. If we happen to have just one towel, it would be clean, he would let me use it first, and that would be the end of it. Then we rejoin civilization and I get a fresh one.

Due to the fact that sometimes my husbands hygiene is not quite what it should be, I have always tried to keep my towel seperate, unfortunately, he sees nothing wrong with it and is always taking the one that I use. There is nothing worse than grabbing a towel after showering and going to dry you face or wrapping your hair only to discover what the towel smells like! Just nasty!
So yes, I agree that somethings, just don't need to be shared.

I don't but I don't think it's a big deal.  My dh doesn't have jock itch, lol.

That's where I draw the line... that's gross. But towels? Seriously? He's clean.

Quoting lnrmom:

We have. When you're getting out of the shower... you should be... oh... I don't know... clean?

Well, sure, but I really don't want to wipe my face on something he just wiped his balls with - clean or not.  Should we all be sharing toothbrushes too?
