Unbroken skin and Hep B?

Nov 21, 2000

I've choosen mutual masterbastion as my way of having safer sex. Recently, I got another person's bodily fluids on unbroken skin on my chest. Is there risk for contracting Hep B in this manor; or is similar to the HIV virus needing direct access to your bloodstream or mucus membrane? I tried asking this question on the forum for Hep, but I didn't get an answer. Thanks for all your help!

Response from Mr. Kull

Intact skin does not provide entry for Hepatitis B virus into your bloodstream. If you are concerned about Hepatitis B infection, get vaccinated.
