Patient :I got a manicure today and the nail tech cut my cuticle with the metal drill and then touch the tip of the antiseptic directly on my open cut. Then she touch the tip of the Neosporin directly on my open cut. I was wondering if it possible to catch staph, HepC or HIV from the antiseptic, Neosporin or metal drill?
