My mom has had hep c for years and didn't know it. She got it from drug use, I am against her coming around me or my son, but my family let's her around anyway so I couldn't do much to control the situation. My mom held my son, and when she handed him to me I noticed pink smudges on his leg were scabs were from a cat scratch. (He was almost 10 months at the time) this was sept. 28. He is 11 months today. I licked my thumb and rubbed it, licked it again and noticed it tasted like blood. So I did it again trying to get it off confused, then I panicked because I realized my mom just held him. I went and scrubbed my tongue right away and used listerine which I know does not kill it, and I cleaned his leg. I then began to worry. She said she did not notice if she was bleeding from anywhere and that she is very careful about that. I'm not sure if it was because his scab could've been picked, if it was hers, or if it was because he was teething and he drooled because I've noticed blood on his onesie from his mouth before. Should I be concerned? She said she was not bleeding from anywhere although she picks at her face a lot. I am unsure if it was hers. Should I be worried? Or am I being paranoid?
