HAV can you get it from a toilet seat if forgot to wash hands but there was no visible feces?? how much honestly would you need to consume to be infected... it's been driving me insane.

Response from Dr. McGovern

Hepatitis A is acquired through ingestion of contaminated food or water so I doubt that you are at risk.

Hepatitis A causes a non-life threatening hepatitis that resolves on its own. It never causes chronic liver disease.
