Hep c transmission from sharing toothpaste
May 13, 2011

I am Hep C positive.I have been very careful with my personal hygiene items(ex.) toothbrush,razors,etc. however,my boyfriend used my toothpaste the other night. I am wondering what risk he is at for contracting hep c? Or am I being over paranoid? Thank you so much for your time

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would not be worried about this at all.

However, I am glad that in general you are very cautious - that is commendable.
