Needle prick!!

Feb 4, 2013

Hello, doctor. i would like to ask you about my accident. Today, i went to shopping for the clothing in the mall but when i choose the skirt, i was pricked by the pin that the seller sticks it with the skirt in my fingertip. I think that there is no blood[but not confident, maybe i cannot see its little amount] but it just broke my epidermis. I am afraid that there is someone was pricked before me because there are lots of customers. So, i would like to ask that in this case there is any risk? and i should go to get test or not. I am quite worry now because i search from many websites and find that some says it is risk but some say it is not. Thank you so much for your answer.
