barbershop and hcv
Nov 20, 2010
Hi Dr. McGovern, I am concerned because today during my haircut, the barber's comb snagged a pimple on my scalp. Afterwards I touched the site and got some blood on my finger, so clearly the pimple broke open and bled as a result of being snagged by the comb.
Response from Dr. McGovern
Barbers are required to use a blade that has been disinfected before cutting another customer's hair so I don't think you should worry about this.
