Hepatitis ans HIV
Jan 4, 2011

I found blood on my floor in my home. I am not sure who it belonged to. I sprayed it with cleaner, threw toilet paper on it, then took more toilet paper to pick it up. I wasnt sure if I had a cut on my finger or not. What would be the chances of getting something from it? I was pregnant at the time and never thought of anything until I relaized a friend was over and they had went upstairs. Now I am scared when I gave birth, if I did get something from it, i passed it on to my baby. Thank you!

Response from Dr. McGovern

I don't see any reasons to be concerned about this. No testing needed.
