What to do If I am living with someone who has B&C???
Feb 25, 2006

My Brother just found out he has Hepatitis B & C. He is sick and now lives with us...what are the precautions I should take to prevent myself from getting either. I know it's hard to catch without physical contact, but is there anything I should be aware of?

Response from Dr. McGovern

You would not want to touch his blood directly with ungloved hands if he should have trauma. I also would not share razors or toothbrushes. Otherwise all should be fine.
