    Worried about possible infection. What type of doctor should I see?

    I'm worried that I may have been exposed to hepatitis C. I let my friends talk me into getting a piercing while on vacation and the place we had it done wasn't exactly the cleanest. I know it was stupid and believe me I regret it. I'm a 28 year old man in good health if that makes any difference.

    Do I still have the Hepatitis bug, in me???

    I had hepatitis about 1975, I don't know if it was XY or Z. First I turned yellow, later my fingers and toes turned black, then later on, I started shedding the dead skin, like a snake, and survived. My Wife is a nurse, I asked her if she had ever seen someone who's skin turned black, she replied only on dead people. I was trying to find out which type it was. Recently I heard that you are never clear of the disease, I had two kids since, could they have the bug it them.

    Water sports/Urine play and Hepatitis C

    I'm aware that this type of sexual activity carries high risk for Gonorrhea/Chlamydia/Herpes/etc and very low (almost non-existant) for HIV. But what about Hepatitis C? Considering no anal sex, just oral (man on man) and urine play (swallowing). How much of a risk does one one put themselves in for engaging in oral sex and water sports/urine play? and also.. according to US Department of Veteran affairs, virus particles (called HCV RNA) can be detected within 1-2 weeks. Does that mean if one....

    Autoimmune Hepatitis

    My son was recently diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis type 1. He is 14 years old and recently started medication (Prednisone & 6MP) which he has responded well to. He has really severe acne and I'm wondering if this is related to the meds or the AIH? He had acne before he started meds. Anyone else out there with a teenager with this diagnosis. It's so rare and I can't accept that this is his life forever. Thanks
