I got into a fight with a person with an unknown Hiv/Hep C status. I suffered a small cut on my knuckle. Right after the fight I cleaned it with alcohol wipes then aprox 15 mins later I washed my hands with anti-bact soap. What is my risk? Please tell me I very nervous. thank you
Response from Dr. McGovern
If your cut was contaminated by blood from the other person, I would get follow-up testing just to be on the safe side.
