38 weeks pregnant and worried about nail file exposure
Mar 2, 2009

I am scheduled to be induced on March 5th and now scared to death. I went for a manicure Saturday and was "knicked" by the nail file next to my cuticle. I did not bleed however in thinking this over, the manicurist did not use a new nail file (it was already in his drawer). I am now scared that I have exposed myself and the baby to hepatitis. Any advice?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I am not concerned about your exposure.

Best wishes to you for your upcoming delivery. Very exciting!
