hep c
Mar 7, 2011

how likely is it to get heptitis c from a infected razor if you cut yourself with it?

Response from Dr. McGovern

There are no data on the risk of getting HCV from a razor. It is theoretically possible (eg, blood to blood exposure)....and that is why sharing of razors is not advised. However, the degree of risk is just not known.

Hep. C from rubbing eye?
