pedicure and hep c
Jun 25, 2002
I have over the last 2 years gotten pedicures, i just recently learned that it is a way to spread hep c.. when removing calluses they use a razor.. if the razor wasnt new what would be the risk factor?
Response from Dr. Dieterich
As long as the razor is disposable and used only once, there should be no risk. The risk is in re using razors with blood on them. DTD
