    RE: Two different questions about tiny scratches and cuts.

    Hepatitis C is only contagious through blood to blood contact. So if you have a non-bleeding scratch, you can't pass it. If you have a bleeding scratch it has to enter into another person through a bleeding cut, but you should keep a bandage on anything bleeding as a safety thing. Also if your cat scratches you and has blood on his claws I would imagine the cat can pass it to another person if it draws blood, but usually you don't bleed right away when your cat scratches you.
    Hepatitis C is not contagious through body fluids and only through sex if there's blood involved.
