Can I Still Hug And Kiss My Family Members If I Have Hepatitis C
Absolutely: Casual contact like hugging, kissing, and sharing dishes will not transmit hepatitis c. Nursing a baby won't. Heterosexual sex with a monogamous long term partner is very unlikely to transmit hepatitis c. However, do not share anything that might have even tiny amounts of blood on it like toothbrushes, razors, nail or hair clippers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Probably safe: Just a positive blood test for HSV1, right? Without any symptoms of oral or genital herpess? If so, there is little risk to your partner. 20-50% of adults in the US have postive HSV1 tests and most part don't transmit the virus to anyone. If you ever have a possible outbreak (an otherwise unexplained oral or genital sore), don't expose your partner at that time. Otherwise don't worry about it. ...Read more

This : This is true, the chances if you continue to do both is very low. In a study of 1484 discordant couples ("discordant" means that one partner had genital herpes and the other did not) for eight months, with half of the couples the infected partner took valtrex, and in the other half the infected partner took placebo (a "sugar" pill), uninfected partners in only 4 of the 743 couples in which the infected partner took valtrex were infected, whereas 16 of 741 developed the infection when placebo was taken. This was a reduction in risk to the uninfected partners of about 50%.In addition, the data indicated that condom use during intimate contact while the infected partner took valtrex every day, only a single uninfected partner developed genital herpes.

My mom has had hepatitis since before I was born. I was vaccinated at birth and am immune to the virus. Can I still get it from her and infect others?
Hepatitis : I assume you are referring to Hepatitis B. If you have immunity from your vaccination then you will not become infected and you will not spread the virus to anyone else. However, sometimes immunity to hepatitis B will wane ten or more years after vaccination. So you may want to consider testing (blood tests for antibody titers) at sometime to be sure that you are still immune. ...Read more

I suffered from genital warts 2 years back and cured with treatment. Is it ok to have unprotected sex with my partner and would i infect them if i did?
Genital warts: You received treatment for your visible lesions, but may still have sub-clinical ones not identifiable with the naked eye. Men can undergo an aceto-wash test that can help reveal some genital lesions, but it is not "fool-proof" and I have never performed it in women. Best bet it to always assume that you could "infect" any partner, and should inform them/use "protection" at all times. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bodily fluid: Hepatitis C is spread by contact - blood or sexual. It involves introduction of blood from an infected person into the tissues / blood of a non-infected individual. This can happen through needle sticks, needle sharing most commonly. Sexual contact can occur but is not as common and usually involves some sort of break in the mucosa http://www.cdc.gov/hepatitis/c/cfaq.htm ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
