I mean I understand why voldemort can not but I don't why the deatheaters can not? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Other person: Well, that's an easy question. Harry was super powerful because he could love. So the death eaters were so weak they jumped back and feel pain when they touch him. :) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Angelina408 (talkcontribs).

Well, no. The protection against being touched only applied to Voldemort. However, Dumbledore was able to work an additional level of protection using Harry's blood-relation to his aunt Petunia, which protected him while at her home against not only Voldemort but his followers as well.
