|HepB+ ,lifetime carrier?!
Apr 11, 2001
They said, if you are a HepB+ then you'll be a lifetime carrier.IF I am a chronic HepB+ and been cleared of the virus naturally,(as you said ,98 could be cleared off natually), will I still be a carrier?

If you clear the virus and develop inmmunity ,you have no virus in your body, and you are not a carrier.Only patients that have the virus in their blood are "carriers",and can be infectious to others by blood or sexual contact.
