Will Hepatitis A Spread Through Farting
I have a severely redundant colon that is also permantly distended by gas, why can stool slowly get through but the gas does not, it goes backwards?
Different processes: Passage of gas is more mechanical process than passage of stool that requires active peristalsis in your colon to pass BM. If you haven't done it, you should have a GI consult for an endoscopic exam for proper diagnosis and management. Use OTC meds for gas and diet modification (avoid beans, cauliflower) in the meantime. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly HepA & HepE: Hepa & hepe are contagious by fecal-oral route, meaning a tiny bit of poop has to go from one person into another's mouth. Possibly, flatulence (farting) that includes "more" than just gas, can send enough poop by way of underwear or by way of hands to transmit hepa & hepe. This is a reason why health departments post warnings when a restaurant employee has hepa. The odor does not contain virus. ...Read more
11years old constipation with lot of gas. Took librax (clinidium and chlordiazepoxide) for 3 months with stelabid. Ultra sound show fatty liver. Hypatitus b and c are -ve. Pencryas ok?
Constipation: If you have chronic constipation, then more fiber likely just makes you bloated and more gassy. This is because you most likely have a combination of evacuation issues along with a colonic motility issue. The best solution at this point would be to see a specialist and get labs, thyroid studies followed by a physiologic work up of your colon. In the meantime.. Low fiber diet with regular laxative. ...Read more
Yes...maybe : Here are two extremes. A monogamous heterosexual couple has one partner who finds out he has hcv. If the other partner is negative the cdc does not recommend condom use. On the other hand, we have an epidemic of hcv in men who have unprotected anal sex with other men. Condom use is strongly recommended in this case. New partners should use condoms for hcv, hiv, hep b, syphilis, gc, chlamydia, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hep B high,Hep C low: Hepatitis is a broad term and there are viral and non-viral causes. Assuming you are talking about contracting hepatitis b or c, then hepatitis b is considered much more contagious sexually than hep c, unless barrier methods are used. Also hep b can be passed from mother to child during birth. In a monogamous relationship, hepatitis c is transmitted. ...Read more

Hepatitis B and C: These viruses are spread by intimate contact-- sharing cups or combs will not transmit disease. These infections are acquired from contact with blood or genital tract fluids. So don't worry about that. It is good to support family or friends who may have these diseases- so education about this is important. There are treatments that can help too- so hope u can get an MD to assist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Possible: With many cases of hepatitis c, the infected individuals cannot identify how they became infected. While most cases are believed to be due to risk factors involving contaminated blood, there are many unidentified modes of hepatitis c transmission. Salivary transmission is one potential explanation and it is very plausable as blood can easily be present in saliva. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
