the classic case of handwashing! for some reason it has been years that I have had to do that than this past week it started up again to the point i'm scrubbing everything down and washing my hands over and over again.I just have to tell myself to STOP it.germs and bacteria are everywhere no matter how "clean" something is.If you are feeling that you are spinning out of control i would say that you need to see the dr.for some help.In the mean time to give your hands a break try and cut back on the washing.maybe you could try and just touch things with a clean paper towel instead?as far as getting herpies from an object i think is very rare,not saying it isnt possible,just rare.I think it has to be more of a direct contact situation because if that were the case i think alot more people would have it.best of luck to you.
I wouldn't worry about it. Make a Routine if you're that worried, e.g. washing hands every 2 hours, and if you rub your penis after it's very doubtful, as sexually transmitted diseases are transmitted only by bad sex.
