Jul 3, 2009

i went to my doctor at surgery.i stood on counter for book an appointment. but when i was going back to home, i saw there was blood on fingre. i had just sore fingres near the nails. but there was no blood from any of cut. i am afraid that i have picked up that blood from counter and it might have touched on fingre and probably on sores. could you please tell can we get hiv or hcv like this

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would not advise testing based on what you describe.

What is the implication of having hep A in the past?
Anti-HBs result
