You sat on the toilet bowl covered with someone else’s urine and immediately thought the worst diseases that will befall you! Relax, this is what can happen. We all happened to sit on a public toilet traces of one’s urine. And if you think that the board toilets clean, you probably did not see the small droplets that remained from the person before you used the toilet.
You’ll probably think of diseases such as fungi, genital herpes, chlamydia, HPV and syphilis, but stay calm.
The truth is that the worst thing that can happen is that you’ll sit on someone else’s urine. The urine himself will not do anything, and even if you are found on the hands and transfer it to your face, you can have peace of mind, says microbiologist Philip M. Tierno, a professor at the medical school. In fact, nothing will happen because the urine usually does not carry harmful germs. Of course, if touching dirty surfaces in the bathroom, which touched the filthy hands of other people, you can pick up different cold viruses, flu, stomach flu or infection by streptococcus or staphylococcus.
But this can be avoided if you wash your hands thoroughly with warm water and soap after using the toilet. So, do not worry, if you sit on someone else’s urine, the worst thing that can happen is that you will be wet buttocks, but you will not pick up any of that organisms from urine. Tierno therefore points out that even putting toilet paper on a board does not make sense, unless you are not disgusted by the very thought to touch someone else’s urine.
