Hi, room my neighbour used to say one can contract disease in toilets. She had the habit of using plastic container any time she use the toilet even though the toilet is clean.
Recently, a lady was on a visit and also insist on using plastic bowl to stool. I found this habit disgusting and I didn't hide my feeling. However, I noticed the practice is not un usual as I had observed ladies doing this.
Recently, one of the ladies complain of stomach upset and visit a doctor who gave her drugs. Upon enquiry from her, she said her ailment, which requires her to apply some cream in her private part is caused by exposure to toilet.
Is it really true that one can contract germs from toilet?
What type of risk are associated?
What should be done as preventive measure?
Can men also got infected? Either by contact or other means ? Thanks.
