transmission through open blister
May 15, 2011
A couple of days ago I "made out" with a girl who I did not know. I'm concerned because I had a 1cm x .5cm open blister on my thumb. I did not touch the girl's genitals, but I did rub her arms and legs for an extended period of time. We also held hands (I held her hand with the hand which had the blister on it). Am I at risk of any kind of infection? Thank you.
Response from Dr. McGovern
No I would not consider you at risk.
