|sewing needle prick
Dec 3, 2006
I work in hair salon me and two other stylist were using a sewing needle to sew hair extions on clips . and i pricked my finger with the needle after one of the other girls used. I later got worried about hep c . So i aked the girls if thy had pricked their fingers also and thy said yes. Am i at risk for hep c or hiv with pricking my finger with the same sewing needle a few minutes after thy did. no blood came out of my finger when i squeezed my finger hard after being pricked

This does not sound like an exposure of concern.
