Open Wound...Please Please Answer!
Nov 20, 2007
Hello Dr. Bob, I am panicking and I'm not sure if I am justified in doing so. I recently cut my leg pretty badly. About 2 hours later, I got a massage (a regular old Swedish one, not sexual, etc). I asked the girl to avoid the cut because it was painful, but she accidently touched it w/ hands/oils etc. I didn't see her hands/arms, so I don't know if she had any open cuts or was bleeding, but I don't think so. Is there a possible transmission here? Thanks so much for all that you do and I'll be sure to send a donation.
