    Worried

    Hello,
    A good friend of mine was diagnosed with hep c a couple weeks ago... before she knew we shared 2 beers and I let her try my margarita ... now I chew the inside of my lip / cheek due to anxiety... always have done it. Anyway let's say if I was bleeding inside my mouth and she was... what are the chances of me getting hep c this way ( sharing 2 beers/ margarita, with chewed inside lip) would salaiva kill it?

    Charm, that is absolutely crazy-thinking. First of all, worrying about something that DID NOT happen is crazy. And, secondly Hep C is not spread that way.

    Please educate yourself about how Hep C and any other contagious disease is spread, before you share spit or any other body fluid.

    I am now cured of it, but I had Hep C from a transfusion. Hep C is not caught by kissing, even if you both had a sore or cut in your mouth. I have been married 35 years and my husband who gets cold sores in his mouth when he is stressed never 'caught' Hep C, even though he sometimes brushed with my toothbrush. Please get educated.

    Well since she was confirmed that's is what worried me. Also reading that cuts in ones mouth is a way to get infected if the person who has hep c gets the blood in your mouth.
    So basically what I am wondering is, if she had blood in her salvia could I be infected if I have a cut / chewing cut in my mouth?
    Am tying to become educated since now my friend has this condition

    Re: Worried

    To get educated read up on exposure to hep C on an official website like the Mayo Clinic website.

    You are just making up a huge 'what if'. You didn't share a razor, toothbrush or nail clippers or have intercourse during menstruation.

    You did not get a transfusion of Hep C blood from tasting a beer.

    Hep C is completely curable these days...there are new meds out which she can get from any hepatolgist (liver doctor), who can help her...tell her to look into it!
    You have nothing to worry about, Hep C is not contagious through saliva the way you described. It is usually spread through blood ...

    Charmc23, 'WHAT IF' are insignificant words that mean nothing.

    We can dwell on 'what if' about anything.

    There is no chance that you got Hep C from sipping on a drink.

    Hepatitis C virus is not spread by sharing eating utensils, breastfeeding, hugging, kissing, holding hands, coughing, or sneezing. It is also not spread through food or water.
