Obviously it's bad to rub your hands all over your face as soon as you're done wiping your ass, or after you're done fixing your car, but what about just gently scratching if it itches when your hands are reasonably clean? Is there really that much bacteria on your finger? Any articles that talk about that?

not sure, but whatever you do don't pick at them!
in my experience for every 1 i eliminate from picking i usually get atleast another 2 around about the same area, anyone else find this happens to them?

I know people say it's bad, but is there a way to prove it? Is there any kind of test one can do to determine the bacteria count on your finger? I don't pick at it, but my face itches sometimes, and I like to massage it.

I think this is ridiculous. Honestly, out hand were meant to touch our bodies. I mean seriously, people think our skin is so fragile that the slightest touch on our face will lead to huge breakouts. Our skin was made to withstand the elements.

Now im not saying rub you face, but i dont think itching your face is bad. Just make sure like you said that your hands are relatively clean...dont do it after you've been working all day etc.
