Can you pick up herpes on your hands from touching things, and contract it genitaly when going o the bathroom?

No risk, no worry: Nobody ever catches herpes by contact with surfaces, or by sharing bathrooms, toilets, kitchens, eating utensils, etc. The virus is only transmitted by direct contact with another person's infected area, such as genital area or lips. Don't worry at all about this, even if you are sharing a toilet with someone known to have genital or oral herpes. ...Read more

When kissing a smoker aren't you swallowing those chemicals in his saliva that are wrinkle causing agents! And his hands touching your face ?

Not so you'd notice: I guess that some extremely sensitive tests might detect some tar and nicotine in your partner's saliva, but highly unlikely that there's enough there to have any effect on your health or appearance. Assuming you're not kissing him while he's exhaling into your face, you only have to tolerate the smell. ...Read more

Can u get hep c from someone hugging you or kissing you on the cheek,just found out from of family has it n worried bad ?

No risk, no worries: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is only transmitted by blood contact. Without blood exposure, household members of persons with HCV are not at risk. Even sex, although often said to be risky, almost never transmits the virus except with traumatic anal sex. Kissing, hugging, and sharing bathrooms, kitchens, or eating utensils are entirely free of risk. So no worries! Good luck. ...Read more
