I used my mom's razor with Hep C
Nov 21, 2004

My mom has had Hep. C for two years and just now told me. I didn't know she was infected and used her razors a few times, but not very often. Should I get tested?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would get tested since sharing of razors with patients with hepatitis C is not recommended. However, I think the risk is low and that your test will be reassuring. Dr. McGovern
