I ordered a package from ebay. When it arrived to 2 days later, I scratched myself on a metal piece of the envelope that was sticking straight up. It scratched and irritaed the skin but did not bleed. I am sooooo scared that the person that mailed to me scratched herself and could have Hep. C. I am a nervous wreck =( Thank you so much for your advice

Response from Dr. McGovern

I think this is an extremely unlikely scenario and would not recommend testing.
