Transmission possible from new razors?
Oct 15, 2001

Dear Dr. Dieterich,

Is there any concern about catching Hepatitis C from a new razor that has been purchased from a store? Thank you for the time you dedicate to answering people's questions on this forum.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Unless someone purposefully contamitated the new razor with blood of a hepatitis C positive person, then the likelihood of catching anything from a new razor is as close to zero as you can get. Viruses have to come from somewhere! DTD
