Touching blood will get infected.

Sep 29, 2014

There was blood on the floor in my office bathroom by mistake touch it from my finger will i be infected pls help I am in panic. I will be married soon.

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

You wouldn't get infected with HIV regardless (HIV would be dead long before you touched the blood).

You would only be at risk for Hepatitis B or C if you had a significant opening into your body on your finger (cut, sore, wound, lesion, etc.) that the blood got inside of. Keep in mind though we're talking about a fresh wide opening generally!

Hope this helps,
