I have small surface cuts on my hands and came in contact with tiny amounts of blood, worried it has entered my cuts. Should i get tested ?

Suggest consult : It depends a little on the nature of the blood exposure and what the person whose blood you possibly came into contact with might or might not have. Most regions will have specific protocols and guidance. Seeing your doctor to discuss further is a good way to sort it all out and decide how extensively to test
