blood on toilet seats
Jul 25, 2004

my daughter sat on a public toilet seat with blood on it -am very worried how high are the risks?

Response from Dr. McGovern

As long as you cleaned her skin off and she did not have any open wounds, I would not worry about this event as a risk. If you are still concerned, you can speak with your pediatrician for testing which will completely reassure you, but I don't think she needs any testing for this exposure.
