|hepatitis virus lifespan in bottle of tattoo ink
May 25, 2009
If a bottle of tattoo ink is contaminated with the hepatitus virus, how long can it survive?
Response from Dr. McGovern
Difficult to say since there are no data. If you are concerned about a potential exposure, I would get tested.
Elevated liver enzymes, sustiva or hepatitis C?
