Handled raw chicken while cooking with a small cut on my hand - washed afterwards with antibacterial soap and alcohol. Will I be ok?

Handled raw chicken while cooking with a small cut on my hand - washed afterwards with antibacterial soap and alcohol. Will I be ok?

Likely will be ok: If the small cut (in a healthy person) was not deep enough to need "closure" by a doctor, it should heal up just like any other shallow small cut on the skin. If it looks too reddish, is too tender, is swollen, or is oozing stuff, a doctor can check for infection. Adults should be up to date on tetanus shots, which means having a Tdap shot (contains whooping cough protection) in the past 10 years. ...Read more

You can expect: for the process to be formal, regimented, and documented if done by trained collectors and breath alcohol technicians.

Hello Sir. I am on Tavanic 500, and taking one tablet every day. Can I consume alcohol during this course?

Hello Sir. I am on Tavanic 500, and taking one tablet every day. Can I consume alcohol during this course?

No.: I assume you have been prescribed this antibiotic for some sort of infection. If so, you are probably going to be taking it for no more than 14 days. If you can't go for 2 weeks without a drink of alcohol, you have a MUCH BIGGER PROBLEM than the infection that your doctor is treating you for. You should not be combining alcohol with ANY prescription drug. ...Read more
