hep c concern
Feb 20, 2011

hi, I visited a nail salon where a nail drill cut my cuticle, at the time there was no bleeding however a day later a little scape formed. I do not believe the drill piece is cleaned between customers. The drill does get quite hot and it cut my left hand after filing my right first. I am really worried and plan to get tested but I would like to know whether my level of anxiety is warranted. Thank you Doctor

Response from Dr. McGovern

I suspect all will be fine but it is reasonable to get testing just to be sure...
