Ways you can prevent yourself from contacting toilet infection

To prevent yourself from getting a toilet infection, also known as a urinary tract infection (UTI), you can follow these tips:

Keep good hygiene: According to healthline, always clean from front to back after using the toilet to avoid spreading bacteria from the anus to the urethra.

Drink plenty of water: Staying hydrated can help flush out bacteria and reduce your risk of infection.

Don't hold your urine: Urinate frequently and don't hold your urine for too long. Holding your urine can increase the risk of infection by allowing bacteria to multiply in the bladder.

Use clean toilets: When using public restrooms, use toilet paper to clean the seat or use a seat cover to avoid contact with any bacteria that might be on the seat.

Avoid irritating products: Avoid using scented soaps, powders, or sprays in the private area, which can irritate the urethra and increase the risk of infection.

Wear loose-fitting clothing: Tight clothing can trap moisture, creating a breeding ground for bacteria. Wear loose-fitting clothes that allow air to circulate.

If you experience any symptoms of a UTI, such as painful urination, frequent urination, or cloudy urine, contact your healthcare provider for diagnosis and treatment.
