Please Drs answer...
Oct 10, 2007

Please I need your opinion, I m a hyginest and I was doing a deep cleaning "prophylaxis" on a young mexican guy, I was wearing gloves and mask, when I was done he told me that he went to a doctor and told him that he had "infected blood" he didnt said what type of infection he didn't know. he said. since that day I cant sleep wondering about that episode, I didn't have any open cuts or felt any splashes in my eyes or nose, maybe on my arms but I dont have any cuts. please help me, what do you think. It is possible to be infected thru the eyes ,or nose without feeling any splashes like microscopic? please help me. Cristy
