Cuts, Abrasions, and possible infection...

Jul 31, 2000

In my line of work I always have small/tiny cuts on my hands. Some like paper cuts, others bandages cover... If I finger a infected female, with a fresh cut on that finger/hand will I become infected???

Response from Mr. Kull

Please refer to the question What are the risks from fingering someone?. While the risk of infection is extremely low, you could cover your hand with a latex glove or put a condom over your finger before inserting it into the vagina.


STD and antibiotics
I really need the answer to my question
