Completely unconcerned. Additionally, whatever it is that kills things better than the drying action of chalk is probably not something I want on my skin and in my lungs.

This is exactly what I was thinking.

(Antibiotic= against life) I don't want that deep in my alveoli. I have worked with people who have fibrotic changes and scarring in the lungs. It's not pretty. Maybe everyone could wear a respirator as they climb.

Maybe try washing your hands more. Have cultures done on your hand infections. I'm betting on e.coli or staph. aureus.

Indiscriminate use of antibiotics leads to superbugs.
