A brush with Hep C?!!
Nov 20, 2010

Hi there, I live with my aunty and she has hepatitis C. I accidently used her nail brush which I used quite rigurously. What is my hepatitis C risk from this incident? I would really appreciate your help I can't sleep and I'm feeling utterly desperate. Thank you :)

Response from Dr. McGovern
