Active compared to inactive Hep C

Does it make a difference as far as contagiousness is concerned, whether you are active or inactive with hep C?? I know you never quite get rid of the virus, but are you more likely to pass it on, if the viral load is high? Thanks hope to hear from you soon. I have a 3yr old and am worried

Re: Active compared to inactive Hep C

Household contact is not a way to spread the virus.

You cannot spread it through hugging, kissing, sharing bathroom facilities, or eating utensils.

Cover your cuts, put your razors away securely, be fastidious about disposing of hygiene products.

Viral load has been associated with a higher risk to women by men with a high viral load through sex. It has been associated with a higher risk through mother to child transmission through birth, but not through household contact.
