forgot part of my razor question
Aug 31, 2004

I forgot to ask:

If a razor is by fact infected by Hep C and you use soap to lather your skin up before using the razor.... does this lower the risk of transmission?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I do not know of any data to suggest that soap lowers the risk of transmission of HCV.

Dr. McGovern

is a razor a risk?
