Can I get Hep C from touching blood after intercourse?

Customer Question

I had protected intercourse with a girl of unknown status and she was having her periods. While removing condom blood touched my hand and penis and inner foreskin.I was having a bit rash on inner foreskin of penis but it was intact no blood. Is there any chances of getting hep c from this act? And I washed my penis and foreskin with soap after intercourse.

The risk of transmission of Hep C through protected sex is quite low.

But as there was contact with blood, there is a little risk.
