hep b
Oct 31, 2006

I work with a client that has hep b and we share a bathroom is there any way I will catch this from him. I also have to bath him and feed him, any help will be a plus to me.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I think the most important thing is to avoid contact with body fluids by using gloves in certain circumstances of risk. If you do have contact, wash your hands immediately.

Above all, I would get vaccinated for Hepatitis B - the vaccine works extremely well.

Hep B & C & antibiotics
