|Hep c through snorting
Oct 20, 2006
Does a person who is snorting a substance have to have a cut in the nose to contract the hep c disease off another person?
| Response from Dr. McGovern
That is what we think. We suspect that there are small cuts or abrasions in the nose that allows the hepatitis C to gain access to your bloodstream. This is a much lower risk scenario than injection drug use.
