    Having some sort of anti-bacteria hand wash is very important. It can be in your purse, bag or anything you carry with you, just to ensure you are able to use it whenever necessary. This comes in handy especially when you are shaking hands with someone whom you just saw sneezing into his/her hands and hope not to catch the flu from. Remember to shake hands and apply the anti-bacterial hand cleaner as soon as possible without them noticing.

    Attacking Symptoms
