Living abroad and scared follow-up
May 9, 2005

So even if a straight razor is put in the alcohol disinfectent solution, there can still be a risk of HIV, HEP, and other viruses? If so, how concerned should I be about this last barber visit? Thank you!

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Yes! I don't let them do that to me anymore! You can get tested now for hep A, B and C and get vaccinated for A and B if you are negative. Don't let them do it again, unless they use disposable razors. DTD
