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
