washing machine episode
Nov 27, 2010
Hi Dr McGovern, thank you for taking the time to help people like me :) My aunty (who has hep c) washed her soiled underwear (menstral stains) in the same washing machine as me. She put some of my underwear in with her load. Is it safe for me to wear my underwear or could I contract hep c this way? Thanks :)
Response from Dr. McGovern
I would not worry about this event as a risk for transmission.
