My 17 year old son has hep c and he wants to pierce his lip in 2 places. Is this ok? Are there any risks to his health?
Response from Dr. McGovern
No I cannot think of any risk that is specific to him because of his underlying hepatitis C.
He should have evaluation for his hepatitis C and the status of his liver however.
