    rubbed my eye
    Anon_41414 posted:
    play in an city flag football league for recreation. during our game last night, i introduced myself to a player and coincidentally rubbed my eye just after i shook his hand. i then noticed that he was icing and scratching his arm and he explained that he got stung by a bee/wasp about 15 minutes prior. is it possible i could've gotten some blood of his on my hand and then into my eye when i shook his hand? during the game, at one point i touched my lip. is it possible that i could have gotten hiv or hep c (which survives longer) from this scenario? i live in a big city where the hiv and hep c rates are reportedly high. should i get tested or get treated with PEP?

    There is no need for either testing nor PEP regarding this incident.
