NEEDLESTICK Question
Sep 30, 2005

Hi, I asked this question before but was not answered. I had an accidental needle stick prick. I sat down and it went in me through my shirt. The docs said that PEP wasn't necessary because HIV doesn't live outside the body long AND it went through my shirt so if there was fresh blood it would have wiped off. Is this true, could you tell me more?

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

I agree with your "docs." PEP is not warranted. What more can I tell you?

Dr. Bob
