Blood to blood is the only vehicle known for infection. However since you are being cautious, toothbrushes and razors in my house are stored high in the medicine/linen closet when guests are in the house. I never put toothpaste directly onto my toothbrush (I put it onto a clean index finger and transfer it) The virus is only killed by bleach and it stays active long after all other types of virus cells die on their own (72hrs)
Soon I will no longer have this issue as I began Harvoni today after a long drag out (13 months) with my insurance company complete with surprise drug and alcohol lab tests. So be careful of others and go easy on yourself.
hope this helps shed some light.
As everyone has said, there was no risk. Now don't be so scared and feel free to share drinks and food and kisses with your niece.
Thank you for your reply dontworry_behappy1.
As far as i'm concerned, my niece does not have hepatitis.
Just that i'm curious. If hepatitis C is transmitted by blood to blood contact, does drinking water that has infected blood with saliva in it could make the person get the virus?
Do you or your niece have hepatitis C? Because there has to be hepatitis C to get hepatitis C. Hepatitis C is pasted by blood to blood contact. I everybody could get hepatitis C the way you described.....everyone would have hepatitis c. it's not that easy to get.
