10 Unexpected Times You Should NOT Use Hand Sanitizer 1

#10: On your kids

Of all the age groups, children are least likely to adopt all safety measures such as keeping the recommended distance or avoiding commonly touched surfaces.

Unfortunately, alcohol-based hand sanitizers can have a negative impact on children too if used excessively. How?

Dr. Graham Snyder, MD, medical doctor of infection prevention at UPMC, explains that inhalation or ingestion of alcohol-based sanitizers can lead to toxicity and internal injuries in children.

In fact, a quick look at the pre-pandemic statistics shows that the U.S. Poison Control Centers have received more than 85,000 calls related to hand sanitizer exposures in small children between 2011-2015.

However, researchers haven’t found any evidence that applying hand sanitizers on children’s hands is harmful if applied correctly and moderately.
