    Hep C Genotype 4 info

    Hello Everyone, I was diagnosed with Hep C Genotype 4 in 1995. I was told that I have a RARE EUROPEAN Strain. I then proceeded to ignore it until very recently. The very 1st thing I learned was that Genotype 4is not RARE or a EUROPEAN STRAIN. its more prevalent in Egypt so calling it a RARE EGYPTIAN STRAIN would be more correct. What I find EXTREMELY PUZZLING is that I managed to contract anything considered RARE or EGYPTIAN since the reason I was exposed to Hep C was by being a Heroin addict of....

    Got known Hepatitis C blood all over my hands

    My grandmother got hcv through a blood transfusion. She is blind, and was rummaging through a travel bag when she accidentally cut herself deep on a razor. I had to treat her wound and got blood all over my hands. I washed my hands with soap, but i kept on getting on my hands as I was treating her. I had forgotten that she had hep c, and didn't realize how hardy the virus was, and that it should be cleaned with bleach. I didn't use bleach until an hour later. Blood got over a significant....

    Dental infection control concerns

    I was watching my son have a root canal and an assistant from another room took the 'filling paste' syringe and ran down the hall - obviously to another patient. She returned soon after and they replaced the applicator at the top of the syringe before applying the paste to my son's tooth. this is concerning enough and I wasn't quick enough to pull them up on it but did afterwards and the dentist admitted it was wrong and in response and to try to make me feel better he then went down....

    Jaundice and itching

    I don't have Hep C, but I thought someone in this group may have some knowledge about itching related to jaundice. I recently became jaundice because of a billiary obstruction. One of the symptoms I had was an intense, unrelenting itching everywhere. Once the obstruction was removed, my billirubin came down, the itching somewhat relented. Now, (5 days later), I'm having some issues with the itch. It's not as bad as it was, but it's still uncomfortable. Does anyone have any idea when....

    Hep b diagnosis

    Hello, I have a question about my hep b serology results. I was under the impression I have a chronic infection, I was told this around 6 years ago. I had a blood test done a couple of days ago and the results are confusing to me as they indicate that I am immune and that I have cleared a past infection. I’m wondering if the original diagnosis oh chronic hep b was incorrect, when I was diagnosed with chronic hep b I don’t think I had actually had hep long enough to clear it. I have also read that....

    Hello, I just had my flu shot give to me and the pharmacist did not change her gloves between the prior patient and myself. Do I need to be tested for anything. Is this legal? Normal? Thanks

    Hep C testing question

    Hello, there is a possibility i was exposed to hepatitis C five months ago involving needles. I was tested two weeks after possible exposure and came up negative, and i was recently tested again a few days ago (roughly 5 months after possible exposure) and I came back negative again. Is it safe to say I am in the clear? Does testing negative for Hep C mean theres a good chance i dont have A or B? Any insight is highly appreciated. I just want to quit worrying about this once and for all. Thank you....
