|Toilet Water splash in eye. SCARED TO DEATH!
Oct 12, 2007
Ok, so I was using a public rest room. I flushed and the toilet got clogged. There was a plunger in there, so rather than be rude and leaving the toilet filled to the brim for the poor next guy, I decided to plunge the toilet. While doing so, a little bit of toilet water splashed into my eye. Is this a risk for Hepatitis B? Or Hepatitis A? I put drops in my eye like 5 minutes later. Please help, Im scared!

I would not be concerned about a bit of splash of water in your eye as a risk factor.
