This is because the applicator and liquid bandage solution is coming in direct contact with blood of the individual. If you were to use this same container, you will have a high risk exposure to any of your aforementioned blood borne pathogens as well as other bacterial or viral infections.Thank you for choosing AskTheDoctor.com
