Hygiene isn’t something you should obsess about. Doing that is unhealthy but you need to be aware of your hygiene so that you don’t get illnesses and so that you don’t pass on illnesses when you get them. One of the first and most obvious hygiene rules that we don’t always follow is to cover our mouths and noses when we sneeze.
Covering our mouths and noses with our hands when we sneeze is better than not covering at all but it’s not ideal unless you wash your hands immediately afterwards. Ideally, you should be using a tissue when you sneeze. A disposable paper tissue rather than a handkerchief is best.
