Stepped on a thorn - father worried on fathers day

Jun 27, 2010

Hi Doc

I recently was walking on a nude beach. While walking barefoot i stepped on a thorn that made me bleed. Now im afraid i will get HIV or Hepatitis since lots of Gay people use this beach. Is there any realistic threat if someone else stepped on the thorn before me?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Nope! (By the way, the same applies to a beaches frequented by "straight people".)

Dr. Bob

Just Thanks
