Some vaccines can be used to protect you from certain diseases caused by bacteria or viruses. This prepares the immune system for defense against the pathogen. However, it is more difficult with viruses because they quickly change their appearance. This means that hand hygiene is also important, as up to 80% of pathogens are transmitted through hands. You should be sure to wash your hands regularly and properly, especially if you have frequent physical contact with others. If there is no sink nearby, we recommend Proxentin Antibacterial Hygienic Hand Gel to prevent possible infections. It cleans 99.9% of the bacteria without the need for water. Disinfectants / biocidal products can thus reduce the risk of infection and help protect other people in the area from infection. But even if the pathogen is already in the palm of your hand, it does not have to be the same. Many bacteria and viruses cannot handle the skin barrier as long as it is intact. However, these can enter our body in other ways. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. Because our eyes, nose and mouth are an open door for all pathogens. Bad bacteria and viruses can also be hidden in your home, if you or a family member have a bacterial disease, you should be careful to disinfect the surfaces in your home. Whether it is a keyboard, countertops or bedside table. Bacteria can survive on smooth surfaces for several days or even months. Surface disinfection is also very important at this stage.
