Please Answer my question!!
Nov 18, 2003
I have terrible Obsessive compulsive disorder and am terrified about contracting diseases such as HIV or Hep. C. I had a wound which had no blood in it but it was slightly open, but not much at all. A friend put some lotion on it for me. If he had blood on his finger and it somehow entered my bloodless wound am I at risk? I don't believe he had blood on his finger nor do i believe he suffers from any serious blood disorders. Like I said I have obsessiove thoughts that haunt me and I would really appreciate a response from you. Thank you
Response from Dr. Dieterich
that is an extremely low risk exposure. you are more likely to get hit by a meteorite! Go get some psychiatric help. There are many drugs now that work really well for OCD. DTD
