One day i checked my glucose level at drug store,just to see if it is normal and this checking was performed with lancet pen and glucose ordinary meter.
I can not remember if lady changed lancet and clean the outer part of lancet pen.
I returned back to ask her it is procedure safe because maybe many people use this same glucose meter.
She said to me the lancet is new and she regulary clean lancet pen.
I belive her that she really change lancet but

I think it is very unlikely that the pharmacist would reuse lancets and therefore I don't believe you have anything to worry about. I really think you're overreacting here.
