what are the true stats
Aug 18, 2003

I asked a question this morning about me daughters possible hep c exposure through a razor and i wanted to also ask why when i go on other web sites many state that hep c can live for a few weeks to even a few months. what are the true statistics and why are there different opinons?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

It depends on the circumstances. If HCV is moist and insulated and warm inside a blood clot it can last for weeks. If it is exposed to air water, shaving cream, detergents or sun, it is gone. Stop worrying! DTD

Please reply its urgent
Hi Dr. Dieterich
