THIRD TRY!! VERY CONFUSED... PLEASE HELP!!!
May 5, 2004

Dr. Dieterich, Is it possible to contract Hep from fingering a girl? No cuts were present, but there could have been hangnails. If so, what type risk is this activity considered and do you feel it warrants testing? Thank you very much for your time!!

-Worried college student

Response from Dr. Dieterich

That is a very very low risk activity! Relax. Check your vaccine status for hepatitis A and B and carry a condom. Good luck! DTD
