Hepatitis C transmission
Oct 24, 2010

my question (and Im probably just over paranoid) but this morning I was on the campus bus and noticed when I picked my backpack up what looked like a blood stain (a pretty good size one) ok and my backpack had touched it and I touched my backpack. Now I have a few small cuts on my hands from my skin cracking open due to them being dry and I was wondering is there anyway at all that I could contract anything like hepatitis c or anything just from touching the part of my backpack that touched the stain that looked like dried blood. I mean I dont know for sure that it was but here recently I have developed a phobia over blood. Thanks for your patience and for reading this I know my questions seems bizarre lol

Response from Dr. McGovern

No I would not get testing.
