My sisters boyfriend was just told he has Hepatitis C possibly from when he was 2 and had blood transfusions. He is now 22. Can my sister get this from him and are we capable of getting it if he would come to our home?
Response from Dr. McGovern
Absolutely not! There is no risk of getting hepatitis C from him unless you were going to share injection drugs together...
Enjoy his company.
I hope his health is good and that he is getting appropriate medical care.
