pricked myself with a used needle what should I do?
Hi Natalle ! Good evening. I am Dr Shareef answering your query. If I were your doctor, I would clean the entry wound with an antiseptic lotion, prescribe for you a tetanus toxoid if not vaccinated, get your Hepatitis B and HIV status done by blood tests, and then decide on vaccination against Hepatitis B. If the HIV status is equivocal, then wait for three months, and repeat the test again.
