|Is touching eyes HEP B risk?
Feb 26, 2011
Dear Doctor, My question is if touching eyes with dirty hands can be HEP B risk? By dirty hands I mean like after picking up mail. No visible dirt on fingers or blood on envelopes. Thank you.
Response from Dr. McGovern
I would not consider this a risk at all.
VERY WORRIED PLEASE TELL ME WHAT TO DO
