Might have stepped on a needle
Jul 6, 2009
Hi dr bob I hope you can pit my racing mind at ease.
Last night I was walking wearing flip flops and something sharp got onto my foot and felt sharp. For sone reason I keep thinking maybe it was a needel because of the area I was in I have seen needles on the street in that city before! Lets just say it was. I don't recall any bleeding. Does this constute a needle stick injury? Should I get pep?
Response from Dr. Frascino
Should you get PEP? No, of course not. You should get some more sensible shoes!
