about hepatitis B reactive
Jul 30, 2013
If I touch a body fluid like vaginal secretion accidentally from a pregnant woman who is hepatitis b reactive with my bare hands, do I am risk in developing same condition? I have a small wound on my fingertip, please do help me.
Response from Mr. Glenn
From what I'm hearing, no.
This body fluid needs to get inside of your body.
A small wound on your fingertip? If this means a fresh cut (like with a knife), then there could be risk. BUT, there's no risk if you're talking about hangnails, dry skin, days-old cuts, etc.
Hope this helps!
