|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!!

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

HCV +; RIBA indeterminate, very worried
