|Hepatitis c and hiv transmition through cuts on hands
Feb 11, 2011
Hi, I couldnt find an answer on the databse so I figured I would ask you. Is it likely that I cold have gotten hepatitis c from using the same pen as a person used. They had blood on there hands and I had cuts on my hands. My worker tells me its a very low chance but I think you know more then him. I am going to get tested in 3 months but it would make it alot less stressful if this was answered. Thanks in advance

You can get tested but I would be quite confident that you will be negative.
