HCV and Hep B Risk - Nail Cutters (freaking out)
Mar 2, 2009
Hi I wanted to know the risk of using nail cutters of someone who is hep b and hep c positive?
Response from Dr. McGovern
Since Hepatitis B and C are transmitted by blood to blood exposure, and since the risk of blood letting with nail cutters to both of you would be extremely unlikely, the risk is basically nil.
