    Hepatitis C

    I just found out today that 5 years ago the VA performed a test on me and it came back positive. I was Never made aware of this! No, I’ve never used intravenous drugs! Over the past couple years I’ve had some very strange & painful things happen. Several times I would get, what I call, an organ spasm. So bad that it swoll & inflated through &under my ribs. It lasts for about 5 minutes but it’s happened several times since. Is this a sign of or caused by the Hep C?? That I just heard about....

    Two different questions about tiny scratches and cuts.

    If i get a scratch the size of a non bleeding cat scratch (no actual bleeding, just mark left behind) do i need to worry if i touched someone? Also if i got a different cut that did bleed slightly, how long after a tiny cut (hours, days) such as that can i stop worrying about touching people?

    Maybe scratched by an instrument, high anxiety

    Hello, I work at a dental office and while I was taking instruments out of the ultrasonic I felt a “scratch”of sort. I immediately took off my gloves, which I didn’t see any holes I saw redness and in three spots that I had felt the “scratch”. I didn’t see any blood I even squeezed the spots and nothing came out. I went through all the patients that had came in that morning and none had any reports of hiv or hepatitis of any kind. If they do report and blood borne disease we take extra precautions....

    Hep B/C risk?

    Would it be possible to get an STD from masturbating with a used bra strap that had been left untouched in a drawer for a few weeks? The bra strap was one of those clear plastic ones (not cotton/nylon). I found it when I moved into my new apartment. I have read that some viruses like Hepatitis B and C can live on surfaces at room temperature for a long time. Do I need to get tested? I am really worried. Any advice would be much appreciated. I am really ashamed of this and have thrown the bra strap....

    Risk for Hepatitis a,b, or c?

    I have a question about blood exposure and the risk of contracting hepatitis. I recently began remodeling my home, and got new flooring and carpet installed. The carpet installer must have cut his finger or hand because I noticed there was A LOT of blood on his shirt and pants later in the day. So he must have continued installing my carpet after the cut. And carpet installers crawl around when they install, so I'm sure his shirt and pants and fingers touched all of my carpet. Also, I saw a used....

    Losing my hair

    My hair is falling out in clumps, which is devastating to me because how I've always prided myself on my hair. My hair length was always at the small of my back, flowing and very healthy and shiny. I've done some research and it's not looking too good in terms of treatment. Most people who have legitimately received treatment which resulted in significant hair growth had to shell out a lot of money and this just isn't in the cards for me. I am a recovering addict, a felon and unemployed....
