I would imagine he would after every patient, but I never seen him do it. I had a zit
that had scabbed over. I picked at it, didn't notice if there was blood or not, but it had a clear discharge, and was most definitely open. Well, he put his hand over the open scab when trying to realign my TMJ. One hand, he had a band-aid over his thumb. You people can say I worry too much, paranoia, whatever... but I feel like I'm always putting myself in a position to come on here for this.
