I hope this isnt a dumb question about breast milk
Oct 24, 2010

I recently went to a friends house and we ran in to a women breastfeeding we were holding the baby and some how when she passed the baby to me her breast milk got on my hand it was dripping. I have dryness around the nails and earlier I was wearing glovers so my hands felt like I was in a pool. Please help I'm very worried. Do I have anything to worry, should I have protected sex with my husband?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Hepatitis viruses are usually transmitted through blood to blood exposure so I wouldn't be worried.
