|fight on my school campus, please help me doctor
Aug 22, 2012
last week there was a fight on my school campus and i tried to break up the fight and i was struck with a mug causing a deep cut on my head, howver at the same time one of the guys that was fighting also bled, so i dont know if his blood came into contact with my head..should i worry about this incident...
Should i test for HIV or hepatitis?

Sorry to hear about the wild time. No, I would not worry about the incident. This is not the type of setting for HIV transmission. It is akin to what happens in war combat.
