My brother has schitsophrenia and I understand that a symptom of this disease is poor hygene. It has probaly been years since he has bathed and never washes his hands. He lives with my parents who also care for my 18 month old grandson out of necessity while my daughter works. I am very concerned about my grandsons health being around my unwashed brother.
My mother doesnt think there is any danger from this but I feel that everything that my brother touches is covered in germs that are getting on the baby! How can I convince them of the danger and convince him to take a bath for the sake of the baby? Am I wrong to be so worried? What are the dangers of a child coming in contact with a person with poor hygene?
