    Can I get Hepatitis C/HIV from prolonged nosebleed?

    Hello! I've had a recurring nosebleed (daily) that lasted 2-3 months. I've since done cauterisation. However, I realised that I've been picking at my nose on a daily basis, and it bled everyday. The nose picking happened randomly and my hands were definitely not cleaned or washed. Considering that it was daily for a couple of months, and bleeding everyday, what is the likelihood that I contract Hepatitis C and HIV through the wounds in my nose (from daily surfaces that my hands come into....

    Hepatitis?

    A 27 yr old friend from Madagascar just passed away after a 4 month sickness. It is known that she had hepatitis (not positive which one- I suspect B or C).

I lived in Madagascar for a year and am quite disappointed in the medical treatment, especially where she was located (Southern Madagascar- very poor). She has a 20 month old daughter and I am concerned that the child and the 5 family....

    Can Hep C clear on its own?

    I was diagnosed with Hep C 2 months ago and had a viral load at that time of 4.4 million. My genotyoe is 1a, but my liver panel has always been normal and I have no symptoms. I'm not scheduled to see the GI for two more weeks, but was wondering if it was at all possible that my body will clear itself of the virus on its own? Could it possibly be a mistake?

    Understanding the Test Results

    My girlfriend last week called me in a grief stricken panic last week because she failed a medical for a job she was applying for. I was shocked to find out that she tested positive for Hepatitis B, which surprised me since she was given the vaccine at birth and so was I. Today she did the follow up hepatitis profile test and some of the test results were confusing to me. She has a few days before she will speak with her doctor to go over with her the results but to be supportive and also brace myself....
