Change Your Toothbrush After the Flu

Dentist Pertev Kökdemir; “Do not touch the brush with toothpaste while you have flu. You should definitely change your toothbrush after the flu.” said.

“The virus that causes this disease accumulates on the toothbrush used during the flu. Unlike bacteria, viruses can survive for a very long time outside the body and cause disease when they find a suitable environment again. For this reason, replace your toothbrush with the new one after you recover; your body will be prevented from being exposed again to intense viral infections during the period of convalescence. It would also be a good thing that you do not touch the mouth of the tube with the brush as you use the toothpaste that you use as long as you have the flu.”
