dried blood
Sep 15, 2004

My daughter went to the doctor this week and before i could say no she stuck her hand on the needle box where they put used needles, of course she didn't touch a needle but it had dried blood from where they had put the needles in there, i washed her hands right away any risk? Thanks

Response from Dr. Lee

No. There is no risk of dried blood transmitting HIV through unbroken skin.

Be well.
