chances of getting hep c
Jul 8, 2011

Dr. McGovern, My mom was just confermed with hep c. In the past I have used her razor, and dont beleive to have cut myself with it. We also have shared soap as well. I plan on getting checked. What are the chances that I get hep c from those?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Unlikely, but testing would be a good idea. I would avoid sharing razors in the future.
