can i live with someone whose hep c positive without infecting me
Response from Dr. McGovern
I you are just living with a friend with HCV infection, there is really no risk to you. I would advise against sharing razors. Only blood to blood contact is a concern (eg, sharing needles) or having traumatic sex.
