i was playing sports and had ran into someone really hard and we both got scrapped and bloody. Is that considered blood to blood? the internet info i found said to go get PEP. Can you guys tell me what you think?
i dont know what 'open wound' really means, does mine qualify?
Data is not needed. It is simply too brief of an exchange for their to be a sufficient risk. When you talk about examples of blood to blood, nPEP would only be administered if you have had a HIGH RISK exposure. a HIGH risk example of blood to blood would be a blood transfusion.
If your doctor is advising that you do this, then it is up to him. We are simply giving you a risk assessment of your 'exposure'
