Discarded Toothbrush
« on: September 11, 2020, 01:06:55 pm »
Hi,

Sorry, another question from me!

I was in a carpark a few days ago and stepped on someone's discarded toothbrush, I was wearing trainers.  I wiped my foot briefly on the grass and drove home.  No idea how long it had been there. 

I took the shoes off, toe to heal.  If the sole of my shoe touched an open wound (the shoes had given me a blister which was bleeding), is there a risk of hep b or c? 

I also put them in my porch and sprayed them with disinfectant spray, but that only kills bacteria.  Not sure if I should be cleaning with bleach?

I know we step in all sorts of nasty things all the time.  I am now seeing someone about my anxiety btw :)
