hep B
Sep 3, 2006

I was wondering if you use earrings or a razer of an infected person will Hep B, would you 100 percent have it too?? thank you

Response from Dr. McGovern

The risk of getting hepatitis B from a razor are extremely low. We simply recommend it since it is theoretically possible for blood to be on the razor and for you to nick yourself.

No issue with using earrings.
