Can you get hepatitis C from French kissing?

Can you get hepatitis C from French kissing?

Nope: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is only known to be transmitted by direct blood contact. Even intercourse doesn't do it, even though hep C is often mischaracterized as an STD. (The frequency of HCV is no higher in the sex partners of infected people, if they don't also share drug injection equipment or otherwise have blood exposure.) There is no known risk via saliva or kissing. ...Read more

Can French kiss transmit HIV and when's the best time to get a reliable and accurate result? My last exposure (kiss) was last month 12 aug 2014

No: Saliva alone cannot transmit HIV. If the person had open sores in mouth or bleeding gums a small chance exists. Get tested in about 1 more months if the person had open sores otherwise not necessary.

I recently kissed a guy who is known to have alot of girlfriends and now I have gotten some small white spots on tongue. We didn't French kiss?

I recently kissed a guy who is known to have alot of girlfriends and now I have gotten some small white spots on tongue. We didn't French kiss?

Tricky: Dermatologic conditions are hard to discuss without seeing them., but white spots often are normally present on the tongue. The only common std associated with kissing (herpes) just doesn't sound anything like that:
it's red blistery
somewhat sore on the outside at the edges of the lips
and it's unlikely to first occur in teen years. ...Read more

I tested negative for hep b antigen after 100 days french kiss exposure and positive for antibody 70 QN due vaccination baby is it conclusive thanks?

I tested negative for hep b antigen after 100 days french kiss exposure and positive for antibody 70 QN due vaccination baby is it conclusive thanks?

No risk, no worries: You are immune to hepatitis B virus (HBV) due to being vaccinated. With without vaccination, kissing rarely if ever transmits HBV so you weren't at risk anyway. And your negative HBsAg test proves you weren't infected. Your repeated questions show you're irrationally obsessed with this. Consider counseling. (Apologies if you're not same as previous questions.) ...Read more

I got 3 shots baby french kiss hep b positive but my ab is 66mui/ml my doc told me I'm immune should I get tested it's been 4 weeks I got no symptoms?

I got 3 shots baby french kiss hep b positive but my ab is 66mui/ml my doc told me I'm immune should I get tested it's been 4 weeks I got no symptoms?

Sounds immune: A previously vaccinated person who got 3 HepB shots is considered immune if his HepB sAb titer is above 10 mIU/mL, which means 66 is ok. Antibodies decrease over time, so such a patient has some choices for the near future. If he plans continued exposure to the virus, he may ask his doctor about rechecking his titer in a year, or maybe get a booster shot and recheck his titer in a few years. ...Read more

The french kiss was fast, I don't have any sore or cuts, and I wash my mouth with rum fast after it. Do I have a chance of hiv? Or something else

Listen Jay...: You're a grown man now. You can't get HIV from kissing, though you can get infectious mononucleosis, cytomegalovirus, herpes simplex, and/or gonorrhea. Kissing is worth the risk. You can't go through life rinsing your mouth with run every time something really nice happens. Congratulations on having been kissed, and may you find true love when the time is right. Best wishes. ...Read more

The: The likelihood of you contracting HIV is extremely extremely low. As I tell my patients....The name of the game is type of fluid that's exposed and the viral load of the virus in the fluid. An open wound in your mouth would increase your risk. An open wound or lesion in her vagina would also increase the risk. It sounds as if this is not your case. The only real exposure is the french kissing. There is HIV virus in the saliva of persons whom are not completely suppressed. There has been no documented case of transmission from saliva (this is contingent on no open lesions remember). I would rest easy...Its likely your ruminating over the encounter. Please be aware the sex trade is fraught with HIV carriers. There are other std's such as hep c which is equally serious...And possibly moreso because there is treatment but serious side effects accompany it. As of 2012 there is no vaccination. There may never be a vaccination. The HIV virus is the most complicated structure the medical and scientific community has encountered in regards to a cure. The best bit of advice is not to contract it in the first place. Please be safe. ...Read more

Can I still hug and kiss my family members if I have hepatitis c?

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 more
