Hi,I was at the gym last night ,after workingout I went the steam room as I entered the room I notice blood every where and I asked a guy what happened ,he said someone nose bleed ,like 20 second ago ,I had 1 day old cuts in my hand dry skin and craked callous in my hand,now I'm worried because I did open the door with my hands,if this person blood was on the door handle ,should I be worried.

Response from Dr. McGovern

No - transmission of viral hepatitis would be through blood to blood exposure.

HBsAg Positive - how know accute or chronic?
