Airline travel can be difficult under normal circumstances, but The Doctors share a story of a woman who created a travel nightmare with a blister on her foot. The woman reportedly popped it in the middle of a flight and blood few across the cabin!
The blood from the woman's foot blister reportedly splattered on 2 of her fellow passengers, along the walls, windows, and people's personal items on the airplane. After the incident, the plane's crew had the woman and the 2 other passengers seek medical attention in order to determine if anyone was put at risk by the incident.
The Doctors note that blood can be infectious and can lead to the spread of diseases like HIV, hepatitis, and bacterial infections. "This isn't just a gross inconvenience, this is dangerous," Dr. Sonia Batra warns.
The panel notes the takeaway from this gross story is that if you are ever sprayed with a body fluid like blood and you are concerned, you should go get checked out by a healthcare professional. Also, they encourage everyone to always wear shoes and socks while traveling on an airplane -- and never attempt to pop a blister while on an airplane!
