Dear Doctor, I was standing in a hospital lobby with my mother. One of the hospital staff was carrying a used drip (plastic bottle and tubes and all) and went from right behind me. I didn't feel anything as I tried to move away from him, but was unable to. He later threw the drip in the dustbin. As a clinical hypochondriac, I fear that the needle might have pricked me and that I might have an infection. When I came home, I checked my back for signs of a prick and found this small spot on my vest (shown in picture). Do you feel this is just an irrational anxiety or something I need to see a doctor about?
