Stepped on a thorn - father worried on fathers day
Jun 27, 2010
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".)
