Barack Obama Doesn't Trust Your Dirty Hands ... Says Ex-Body Man

President Barack Obama doesn't want your disgusting germs ... this according to his former "body man" Reggie Love.

Love -- who served as Obama's personal aide from 2007 to 2011 -- was hanging out at the DNC in North Carolina this week when he told us the Top 3 items a good "body man" should have on him at all times.

The list isn't too impressive ... but there is one interesting "must-have" -- Purell ... the hand sanitizer.

Smart move considering how many hands the POTUS shakes every day ... and lets face it ... people are gross.
