Can You Get Hepatitis From Sharing A Drink
Can hepatitis be caused by alcohol? I got a after sharing a drink with an indian intern at a party.
Depends: Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver, and it is caused by many different ways. The kind of hepatitis you got (a) is caused by a virus that is usually food-borne. That means that you likely got it from food that was tainted with it. It is possible that you drank from a cup from someone who was carrying the virus and was using poor hygiene. Alcohol itself can cause hepatitis if drank in excess. ...Read more

Diagnosed with alcoholic hepatitis about a year ago - can drink at all? And why do I get drink off just 1 or 2 beers now? My husband was diagnosed with alcoholic hepatitis about a year ago... He served in the military where they treated him a disease
He gets drunk after just a beer or two now because of his alcoholic hepatitis. The hepatitis means that his liver cells have become inflammed (injured). The unhealthy liver cells can no longer metabolize (break down) the alcohol he drinks. When his liver was healthier, the cells could metabolize the alcohol. If he continues to drink, he may well develop cirrhosis. Cirrhosis destroys liver cells and creates fibrous scar tissue. Since we need our liver to metabolize a lot more than just alcohol, it is essential to live. Please look up alanon in your yellow pages.

Can I get oral hsv1 from kissing someone with my mouth closed? Can I get it from drinking after someone? What about sharing toothbrushes?
Don't obsess!!: Don't obsess over hsv1. The potential to be exposed to it is very high, so high that by age 27 you probably have already been exposed and don't even know it! While you shouldn't be kissing someone with any type of active virus, drink out of the same glass won't cause an issue and how expensive is it to purchase your own toothbrush. Certainly cheaper that seeing a psychiatrist! ...Read more
I get strep throat often. I avoid sharing drink, utensils, ect with people which has helped alot, but still seem to catch it once in a while.?
HAND TO FACE TRANSFR: I know a psychologist who studied human behavior & found the average adult touched his/her face with unwashed hands 6x/hr & nose 2x/hr.
