Secondhand smoke

Anon_126579 posted:
I was at a night club had a bad laceration in my mouth. On the way to the bathroom, someone blew smoke from a cigarette in my face. Being that smoke is exhaled through the mouth and nose (both of which can have traces of blood especially the nose), can secondhand smoke be contaminated with blood when inhaled or if it gets into your eyes. A lot of time my nose gets really dry and bleeds, so does secondhand smoke present a risk?
