Could i be carrying C Hepatitis virus

Posted , 3 users are following.

I was in a hurry and i used my father's razor to shave, and accidentally cut myself. It might even been a new blade, idk, i chose the best looking one. I don't know if it's even a cut. There were two very little blood spots on the skin, not larger than the hair , and i didn't feel any pain. My father had C hepatitis like 5 years ago, and he defeated it. Is there any chance i could've gotten the virus?

    My advice to you would be to go see your doctor and get tested.

    If your dad had a SVR (sustained virologic load)at 6 mths then he is cured, so he no longer has the virus and therefore isn't at threat of transmitting hep c.

    Cont...However, if he didn't get these results at 6mths, like Angelina said go get tested. Even if u r infected there are new drugs to cure u now.

      I'm on two Hep C medications and tomorrow I start my 11 weeks on these medications. I have been tested on my 5th to 6 week on the medications and tested undetected but my iron was a bit low. The side effects are a bit much but it is tolerable. I can't wait to get off these medications cause I have just about had enough already. Though people don't get discouraged cause it is a cure, and a light at the end of that tunnel.
