Can sitting on a public toilet cause an infection?
Ever since I could remember my mom always told me to squat when i went to like gas stations or places lioke that. I obviously woludnt sit on a dirty toilet but like one's at restaurants that are clean. What are the chances of getting some sort of infection or something?

there is a 50/50 chance but i would still be on the safe side

You can't get some viruses like HIV from it (it's a fact), however, you never know who has sat on the toilet before you. The person before you could have had a disease or infection that is transmitted by touching something the carrier has touched. Just wipe the toilet seat before sitting down and put some toilet paper (or seat covers if the stall has it), and you should be okay. Try not to touch the seat too much also if you can help it.

.... im kinda a germ fob so i paper the seat no matter what the thought of siting where someones sweaty a$$ was is a freaky one so i paper it no matter what and you should too!

This was on that myth show on mtv a long time ago.. and they proved that you CANNOT catch anything from sitting on a public toilet. Although, I still use the toilet cover paper, cuz that's just nasty


sophalas
yes, you can get crabs and thrush etc....

my ancestors would go to the bush alone... so i'm still trying to comprehend why euro-pee-ans would want everyone to pee together?

Yes you can. I cant tell you exactly what type but you can get infections from toilet seat.

I'm not sure. I think so.

But please do one thing. When you use a public toilet, line it with toilet paper or bring liners. (They have purse packs i buy them all the time. I don't sit on public toilets unless I line them with something)

I'm not trying to be mean don't take this the wrong way and I'm not saying you have an infection, but........

It's people who squat and spray urine all over the toilet that spread these infections. Be considerate for those of us who use that toilet behind you.

Very small chance. I've never known of anyone getting one from sitting on a toilet.


aebhenry
Don't ever sit on a public toliette. Push the handle with your foot because that is germy too.

Yes, my neice was trying to 'squat' and the back of her thighs hit the commode and she broke out in bumps. Be careful. Put tissue on the seat and squat!


Dr Dee
yes you can

After reading all the answers, I am not sure that I want to sit on my own toilet any more.
