Follow-up question. Blood in eyes,PEP reccomended?
Sep 6, 2007

Thank you Dr.Young for your answer of Sept 4. It has been 5 days from the incident now. So I can only hope that all would be fine since the risk is low, and try to cope with fear and great anxiety for 3 months.

Kind regards Anthony

Response from Dr. Young


Sorry to hear that you're out of the PEP treatment window. I know (personally) that the period following occupational exposure can be very stressful. Again, I do think that your risk is very low, but low doesn't equal zero-- hence the stress.

Here's hoping for a healthy outcome. BY
