It makes sense that

if you wash your hands with anti-bacterial soap/sanitizer often, you are more susceptible to staph/flu/common cold. Here is my reasoning: (mind you I am no doctor)

Every time you wash with sanitizer or anti-bacterial soap, you not only wash away the bad bacteria, but the good too. So that good bacteria that used to fight the bad is no longer there, so it would take less bad bacteria to get through to infect you.

That's my theory anyway.
