Reached Into Drawer, Cut Finger on Knife Blade
« on: October 08, 2018, 11:00:29 pm »
I reached into my silverware drawer tonight and cut my little finger on the blade of a sharp knife. It bled quite a bit so I put a band-aid on it with some antiseptic. Any chance I reinfected myself with it? I had some unsterilzed items in there tho I doubt there was blood on the blades and if there was it might have been years old. I think it was on a knife I haven't used in a year or more. I'm not sure which knife did it.
