I really appreciate any advice thanks in advance. I locked my keys in car a nice person helped me get them out. When they opened my door I noticed they had a large cut on side of hand it looked to be bleeding but not bright red blood. I not thinking touched the handle 15 seconds after I dont have bleeding cuts but I have dry splits opened spots from excema. Do you think Im at risk for Hiv or hep?
