Can saliva transmit Hepatitis B/C

Apr 28, 2013

I was talking to a friend of mine who is Hepatitis B/c positive and he splashed as he talked particle of saliva on my mouth. What are odds that I am infected?

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

Saliva does not transmit Hepatitis B or C. It sounds like you were not at risk.

Hope this helps


What are my chances?
