Worried about hepatits C exposure
Sep 5, 2010

About a month ago I used a towel at a hotel. After using it, I noticed it had a spot of dried blood, which could fall easily from the towel. I had some small wounds on my legs after using razor and because of my unconfortable shoes. I am very worried that hepatits coud get into my bloodstream that way. Can you tell me what's the risk? Thank you.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would not consider this an exposure and would not recommend testing.
