Response from Dr. McGovern

For your hepatitis C infection I would advise that you have testing for HCV RNA to see if you have chronic infection. If you do, you may need a liver biopsy to see if you have any liver disease. Even if you have normal liver function tests, you can still have some scarring in your liver.

I cannot really comment on the rashes on the inside of your mouth. If you are concerned regarding your medical care, I would certainly get a second opinion.
