Blood and Saliva
Apr 13, 2006

I have a co-worker that alway's has open cut's, scabs and slurrs all the time..Am I subject to catch this with his open cuts and scabs like that. He never has band aids on them. Sometimes there are open cuts on his arms.. I sit next to him and he has this thing that he kisses the women all the time on the cheeks. He has drool or a cut on his face.. Should I be worried abou this.. ?

Response from Dr. McGovern

This does not sound like a risk to you whatsoever.

However, make certain he knows his place!
