Nurse gave me wrong item.

Patient

Q: Yesterday I gave a urine sample for UTI testing. She gave me three packets to clean myself. These were not the usually packets. They were really small. I thought the clinic was just using a different brand. I used them but they made me burn, I asked her about it and she said it was just rubbing alcohol. I had to give blood later and I think what she gave me was the item that the tech used to clean the area before inserting the needle. The burning went away within 10 min but I am worried about getting a yeast infection or something else. I am worried that it might have been some other chemical. It's a Saturday so I can't go back to the clinic and ask what was used. Everything seems fine right now but, I am worried. I don't think she gave me the right cleaning packet.

Symptoms:  No symptoms now.
