Please don't judge but I just found out 3 days ago. Do you need two separate wash towels? Or can you wash your body with one?

To be honest, I used a different towel EVERY single time when I found out. I always wash my privates last and made sure to wash my hands in between. However, the diagnosis triggered my OCD that accompanies my anxiety/depression and I was washing my hands religiously as well as taking 2 hot showers a day. I never used the same towel twice. The doctor actually told me that, if I could mentally handle it, I needed to stop being so paranoid and washing so often. That being said, you should be fine using the same towel as long as you don't wipe your genitals and then wipe your eyes with the same spot.

I hope that helps a little bit. You're not alone for worrying- we aren't judging!
