|Hepatitis from dried blood
Oct 13, 2010
Hi An injured person knocked on my front door for help. He left blood all over the door which I touched by accident several hours later. I did not have any cuts on my hand, but may have touched my eyes and nose. What is the risk that I have caught something? Many thanks.

From a dried blood exposure with no cuts on your hands....I would not bother testing...
Hep B vaccination and Hep B surface Ag
Hep C from a "bullet"
