The Doctors: Should You Shake Someone’s Wet Hand?

One of the most common awkward situations a person may run into on a pretty regular basis is meeting someone for the first time, very soon after you have left the bathroom and the person offers to shake your hand. Should you shake their hand with your wet hand? Should you wipe the wetness off on your pants? Or should you come clean and just say you can not shake hands right now because you have wet hands?

Just under half of the people in the audience said they would wipe their wet hands on their pants and then shake hands. The Doctors on the other hand all said they would come clean and say they could not shake hands. Dr. Masterson added if the roles were reversed, you would not know why the person had wet hands in the first place. They could really bad at using the restroom, I guess.

The Doctors talked about a story where a man on a flight happened to be sitting next to a woman with a cough. As the woman kept coughing throughout the flight the man kept berating her for her cough. After the flight landed, the man was so irritated he body slammed the woman to  the ground. He was promptly arrested. Obviously this man went a bit to far, but how far would you go if someone coughed on? Would you ask them to turn their heads? Would you ask to move seats? Let me know in the comments.

The Doctors: Airplane Germs

The Doctors discussed the ease of getting sick on an airplane. Studies show that it is nearly 100 percent easier to get sick on an airplane. Other studies have shown that of 100 passengers on a flight, on average, 5 of those people are going to have the cold or the flu. Yikes. But Dr. Sears gave some great pointers to keep healthy on a plane. Dr. Sears said tray tables are great spots for germs to live, up to 48 hours he said. Dr. Sears recommended sanitizing the tray table before use with s sanitizer than can kill MRSA.

Lavatories are also notorious places for bacteria like E. Coli to hide. Dr. Sears also said the pouch under the tray is often very dirty and recommended not using it all. Dr. Sears did recommend though, the use of a Saline Nasal Spray to keep the nose moist and free of germs. Dr. Sears also recommended putting the AC directly on the chest area to keep germs away.

The Doctors: Jeremy Renner Viagra Accident

Jeremy Renner, the Borne Legacy star, recieved a pill from a friend thinking it was a sleeping pill. When he took the pill to fall alseep while on a flight he quickly realized it was a viagra pill. Oops.

The Doctors recommended to never take a pill when you were unsure what it is, even if someone else gave the pill to you and said it would be fine. The Doctors cited the fact most pills look similar to other pills, such as Ambien looking very similar to Viagra. Also, taking the wrong pill could cause an allergic reaction.

The Doctors recommended calling a pharmacy to ask what the pill is by telling the pharmacist the letters and numbers stamped on the pill. Dr. Ordon had the best advice though. If you are in doubt of what the pill is, do not take it.

The Doctors: How Does Viagra Work?

The Doctors answered a question from an email that asked if a man tasks Viagra, will he immediately get an erection or does his penis still need to be stimulated? Dr. Masterson said the penis still needs to be stimulated. The pill just helps to make the erection happen quicker and last longer.
