TEENAGE DISASTER - Please answer this time Dr Douglas Dieterich
Jun 16, 2005

Dear Doctor Douglas T. Dieterich,

Please, please, Please, please, Please, please, please, answer this time because I'm going really crazy after my stupid accident.

I'm a 16 year-old boy who went to a strip-club. The stripper was masturbating and she touched my nipple with a bit of vaginal fluid (I unzipped my shirt), then she instantly bit my nipple.

I didn't see any blood on my nipple and I didn't see anything the next day, apart from a little, little pain or maybe a small mark.

Is it possible that she gave me hcv/hbv/hiv by pressing the vaginal fluid into the little abrasion (small not visable cut) even there was no VISABLE blood? (I had hepB vax but I'm afraid about hepC and hiv)

Is it small or only teoretical risk or maybe no risk?

I am really grateful for your answer because maybe it will help me finally focus on something else and stop my shyrocketing fear.

Thank you so much.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

That is a virtually no risk encounter! Stop worrying and focus on your school work! Safe observing I guess is necessary too! Stay well. DTD

How is Hep. C transmitted--sex OR needles or both?
Is Hepatitis C sexually tramsmitteded or on thru needles?
