The best way to reduce any infection is to consistently wash your hands with warm water and an anti-bacterial soap or hand sanitizer. Hand washing should be done after touching public objects or bodily fluids, before and after food preparation, or helping ill individuals. The CDC recommends that individuals should use alcohol-based products. Alcohol-based products reduce the transmission of pathogens, fungi, and viruses.
**Alcohol levels can vary from 60%-85%, with 62% being the most common. Alcohol-based products can come in the form of gel, foam, or liquid.
