Hep B from Feces on Toilet Seat?
Feb 19, 2008

I recently used a public restroom. After I was done, I noticed there was a bit of dry, crusty poop on the seat, which I came into contact with. I decided to be nice, and clean it off for the next person.

Am I at risk for contracting hepatitis B or C via this route? Or is this low risk? Thank you so much!

Response from Dr. McGovern

No you are not at risk.
