Anthony Bray MD :

Hello and Good morning to you!

Anthony Bray MD :

No this situation is not a concern with regard to you contracting Hep B or C....

Anthony Bray MD :

This is a normal everyday situation that you describe here!! Drinking from a cup but perhaps handling the cup with hands not washed>> how many of us are guilty of that!!

Anthony Bray MD :

My goodness!! If this were to make you contract Hep B or C then we would ALL have it!! Good news >> that is NOT the case!!

Anthony Bray MD :

So relax!! You are fine!

Anthony Bray MD :

I'm sorry that you have become so fearful of this particualr disease. You have a lot of company in that there are many many people with health concerns that are out of proportion (not so many that are specifically worried about hepatitis but many that have some sort of health paranoia...that is quite common...)

Anthony Bray MD :

I hope this is helpful for you. Let me know if you have further questions or discussion in which I may be able to help!

Anthony Bray MD :

Best regards,

Customer:

i was just thinking related to my questions, every body buys soda cane they open it and drinking it now they do put there lips

Customer:

on the cane with there mucus membranes as we know were they put their lips in an area on a cane that is not sealed i would have fears of exposure

Anthony Bray MD :

OK >> in the situation of a drink can >yes with place out lips on the can but A) Usually we are not drinking with exposing open sores of compromised tissue (Ouch that would hurt!) and B) we would not expect this surface to be likely to have been recently exposed to an infected person's blood or body fluids >>(Gross!!)

Customer:

so you say there would be no risk to hep b,c from drinking from a can as long no open sores?

Anthony Bray MD :

Remember that Rock Hudson (had HIV) and french kissed female stars without transmitting the virus... OK well Hep B and C are somewhat more transmissable than HIV but also there are many cases of wife has Hep B or C and husband does not contract it... same with male has it and not transmit to wife, etc...

Anthony Bray MD :

Right the combination of factors that would need to go wrong with catching Hep B of C from a drink can would be extraordinary....

Customer:

but in a medical terms you will still say very low risk

Anthony Bray MD :

You would need an unusual circumstance of contamination of the can PLUS an unusaul susceptibility on the part of the person drinking from the can...

Anthony Bray MD :

EXTREMELY LOW RISK....

Anthony Bray MD :

You could probably set up a lab experiment to make such a transmission work ,,, sharp edge can, person with open sores in the mouth... purposely exposing the can to the virus...etc...

Anthony Bray MD :

The combination of factors needed for such a transmission is just so very unlikley to occur in real life though....

Anthony Bray MD :

Itis akin to worrying about being struck by lightning as you sleep in bed at night... or less than this even....

Anthony Bray MD :

I am sure that there are probably some people out there that have bene struck by lightning while in bed but I doubt that anyone is likley to have caught HEP B or C from drinking from a soda can...

Customer:

ok a doctor told me i will not be at risk if i come in contact if i have an open cutin the environmental surfaces unless i work in a blood lab would you agree?

Anthony Bray MD :

Right, routine cuts and injuries happen all the time... we do se accidents in the medical setting such as surgeaons accidently catching themselves with a needle, accidental needle sticks and so forth... this would be a reasonable concern for risk.. if you handled blood in particualr...

Customer:

thanks doc!

Anthony Bray MD :

An injury in the routine environment does not really place you at risk..

Anthony Bray MD :

You are very welcome!

Anthony Bray MD :

Take Care!

Hello again!

You have too many accidents! No >>the incident that you report wopuld not lead to risk of hepatitis. Blunt type injury so you should not have to worry about hepatitis. A fall in a bathroom probably gave. You a bruise or two however!

i got tested for hep b surface ab [KCH}


 


HBsAb {mIU/ml} 3.37


what does it means

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello!

We need to clarify here>>> Hep B surface ANTIGEN. Is the main test that may indicate that you are infected with Hep B. .... Hep B surface ANTIBODY is a check for your immune response.... If you have had the Hep B vaccines then this test indicates a positive response and if in range that you would have adequate immunity from the vaccine... If you have had the vaccine then the Hep B surface ANTIBODY is NOT useful as a screen for primary infection... If you are being tested for infection then a panel of Hep B surface antigen , surface anybody and envelope antibody may be used to screen for the presence if exposure to the virus up to and including an active infection . ( the surface ANTIGEN > this is the test that most directly tests for INFECTION as the ANTIGEN is from the virus itself. Antibodies measure your immune response. So the interpretation here would depend on your vaccine status and antigen or antibody test??

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions or discussion and I will be happy to get back with you. Best regards ,

Anthony Bray MD
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i did not take vaccine and this is a physical i had to take for a job so you know what 3.37 means

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello! If you have not had the vaccine then you must have been exposed to hepatitis Didn't you idicat that your ex had hepatitis? _hat would seen likely source.

If this was new finding. Then you should have follow up tests Hep B surface anttigen, core antibody,core antibody and envelope antibody tests as well as viral load and liver enzymes to cheeck for inflammation. Treatmnt fo heepatitis is available as you know I am sure...

I hope this is helpful..let me know if you have furtther questions. Best regards,

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i tested many times and i am negetive

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

Well if you have been repeatedly negative in the past then I suspect this may be a spurious result. I would recommend a panel of blood tests for hepatitis to help settle this issue... You may have a false positive for one hepatitis antibody but this would not cause a positive hepatitis B antigen test nor positives for core hep B antibodies or hep B envelop antibodies... So the result if negative can still be easily confirmed even though the surface antibody test may be in this case unreliable. I would advise the follow up blood tests to be on the safe side.

I hope that this helps! Let me know if you have further questions and I will be happy to get back with you! Best regards!

Anthony Bray MD
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

it is not spurious results i have been donating blood and the results are accurate

 

after my ex wife test results i tested more than 10 times and it's been negative

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

??? Perhaps we have signals crossed... I was trying to say that the odd result ( the positive hep B surface antibody test) was the probable spurious result if you have had ten negative results for the same test .... I think you interpreted what I said in the opposite if my meaning here...

If the same test is repeated 11 times and 1 is positive and 10 are negative then it seems logical that the outstanding outlier or the abnormal positive would be the false result... So I was indicating that it would make sense to me to have a set up further tests which I would expect to confirm that you do not have hepatitis considering your history of repeat negatives....

I hope that this is helpful! Let me know if you have furher questions or discussion. I will be happy to get back with you. Best regards!

this above is on my physical test so what 3.37 means

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,OK , that's fine. Let me know if you should have further concerns.Take Care,Anthony Bray MDPs there is no particular significance to the value of the test here.

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

Right the above result is a more complete test panel for hepatitis and this is clearly negative.....

So the more recent isolated hep B surface antibody result would seem to be the falsse result here...

I hope this is helpful. Best Regards,

YOU SAY. So the more recent isolated hep B surface antibody result would seem to be the falsse result here...


 


 


i dont understand what you mean here

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

You have conflicting results. The previous testing for hepatitis B has been negative but the last test for the hepatitis B surface antibody is POSITIVE. These can't both be correct.... Either one or the other must be false... Since the vast majority of your testing for hepatitis then I would conclude that the most recent test for hepatitis B surface antibody ( which was the positive result) must have been false....

The one test being a false positive seems to be the best explanation for this result at this point.... As you point out you have been tested many times for hepatitis B with repeatedly confirmed negative results.

I hope this is helpful to clarify ... Let me know if you have further questions or discussion. Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

what? none of my tests were positive i never told you i had a positive results

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

The HbsAb test should be "non- reactive" . Your recent result of 3.37 was a POSITIVE result. I have had this test and my result was close to 20.0 by comparison. I do not have hepatitis B but I have had the Hep B vaccine series. This test may be used to check a person's minute to hep B but in patient's whom have not had the va ccine the result being positive would usually indicate exposure to hepatitis B. in your case the vast history of negative hepatitis B results plus this being a low titer and a single result among dozens of tests for hepatitis>>> these factors lead me to the conclusion that your HbsAb result of 3.37 is probably a false positive result. Here is where we look at the body of evidence in entirety and make conclusions based on the whole body of evidence and not overly interpret this one result which is not consistent with your previous testing.

I hope that this helps to clarify the results and their meaning. Let me know if you have other questions. Best regards,

Anthony Bray MD
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

but you said these results HBsAb {mIU/ml} 3.37 have no particular significance to the value of the test here.

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

Right there is not much to be really interpreted in the VALUE of 3.37 but RATHER that the report is not zero or reported as your other tests as NON-REACTIVE. It is the REACTIVE vs NON- REACTIVE which is of significance here. There is not a response that would be related specifically to the value of 3.37 vs some other number such as 9.97 for example .... We would view these two numbers in the same light essentially as being positive = anything other than NON- REACTIVE.

The other tests that were negative do support you bring in truth NEGATIVE for having hepatitis B. these other tests may be considered for a repeat to confirm that they are still negative...

I think what has happened is simply that your immune system has made a population of antibodies that is so closely reactive to hepatitis antibodies that this I e test turned positive on you. I suspect this to be the case rather than you having hepatitis B.... Antibodies are special complex proteins made by cells if the immune system ( lymphocytes and plasma cells) and these may be stimulated by a number of bacteria, viruses and other factors( some drugs induce allergies and sometimes we get autoimmune disease for example)

So you have a sub population of antibodies that is reacting similar to antibodies against the hep B virus. We need to be careful to interpret this new result with care and precision and not OVER-INTERPRET this result either...

I hope this explanation is helpful . Please let me know if you have further questions and I will be happy to get back with you. Best regards,

ok there is also a note in my physical saying ADIVA centaur anti-hbs assay is a sandwich immunoassay using direct, chemiluminometric technology


 


what is it

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

I don't have much to tell you as far as the specifics of testing method techniques or technology differences. I can help interpret the test results but I am not really involved in the evaluation of the testing methods themselves.

Now with that disclaimer if you will, I can tell you from the above description that the testing involved a binding if an agent that is supposed to be specific to antibodies directed against the hepatitis viral surface.... The bonding agent causes a color difference which is then measured by instrumentation. It may have one or more very specific colt absorption bands that are affected. In other words when antibodies to hepatitis B virus are present in the blood the combination if the blood sample plus the specific bonding agent causes a change in the color absorption profile of the sample. This change is interpreted to give a result which corresponds to your result. The color absorption should not be altered if there are no antibodies present that are specific to the hepatitis b viral surface. This last test showed a measured shift in the color absorption which has been I retorted as a small presence if hep B antibodies.

It is complicated! Your test result implies the presence if antibodies vs the hepatitis b surface BUT this is contradicted by numerous similar tests. So the above panel that you state was all negative included Hepatitis B surface antigen( this test is more specific as to infection with hepatitis B) if this test and perhaps the other two subtypes if hep B antibodies were tested again I suspect that these would be negative...this would fit best with the total if your past results....

I hope this helps to clarify the picture. Please let me know if you have further questions and I will be happy to explain further to you to the best of my ability! Take Care!

ok do you think i have hep b


all the incidents i told you about you said i am not in danger for hep b so i want to know if you think i have hep b

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

No I don't think that you have hepatitis B. You may have had a false positive result as we discussed or possibly could have contracted hepatitis B, None of the scenarios that you asked about here have seemed to be risky for you to contract hepatitis B however!!

So I think that it would be best for you to retest the full panel of hepB tests that you have had in the past. I anticipate that the other tests will prove negative.As I have said the only risk of hep .com that you have had as faras I know would be from your ex wife but you KNOW that you have been negative long after being with her! Could there be some other risk of exposure? More recent exposure? Perhaps this might be the case such as being intimate with someone with the virus but none of the scenarios that you have discussed with me would seem plausible as risk of hep B exposure.....

I would be on the safe side and recommend the completion of the hepatitis surface antigen test as well as the envelop and core antibody tests. The antigen test is the most important one however....

I hope this is helpful. Let me know if you have furhter questtions. Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

so are you are positive that the test will show negative?

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

No >>honestly I THINK that your follow up detailed hepatitis tests will be negative but there is no way that I can guarantee that this is the case!

One possible explanation is that you somehow contracted hepatits B but with your numerous past negative tests plus the relatively low titer or 3.75 I think that it is more likely that you will prove negative for this infection.As we have discussed several episodes of concern that you have had these situations would NOT seem to pose reasonable risk of infection....
I don't know if you may have been with another positive individual sexually for example as this would be the type of situation that would put you at risk....

I suspect and hope that your repeat detailed tests will prove negative. It hink the relatively low titer would fit better with a false positive test than an an actual infeection. KIf you had contracted recent hep B then I would anticipate a higher titer than your value of 3.75.... Only time and the appropriate tests can answer this question with certainty however...

I hope this is helpful to clarify. I'm sorry that yopu had this resulty pop up as I realize the fear and dread that you have for hepatitis. I do hope that your follow up tests will prove you negative to alleviate your worry in this regard.

Take care,

Anthony Bray MD

YOU GAVE ME WRONG INFO !

 

DR P, Jyoti said on just answer told me this

 

 

HBsAb is not an indicator of Hep B infection. It is a protective antibody against Hep B infection.

It indicates that you are not immune to HepB, thats all it means.

It does not indicate that you are positive to Hep B, it is not used for that purpose (finding if you are positive to Hep B).

 

Since you have 3.37, it indicates that you are not sufficiently protected and that therefore you will need further Hep B vaccine.

 

It indicates that you are not immune to HepB, thats all it means.

It is used mainly in association with Hep B vaccine - to find out if you have developed sufficient immunity after taking the vaccine or to find out if you need vaccination.

 

It is not used much for Hep B infection but instead used to find out if you are protected against Hep B or you need vaccination.

A level of 10 IU/L or 10miu/ml indicates that you are protected.


So no worries here.

Take care.

 

P.S HE TOLD ME HE DEALS OFTEN WITH HEP B PROBLEMS I ALSO MADE MY OWN RESEARCH AND CAME WITH THE SAME CONCLUSION

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,You have told me that you have had no vaccine to hepatitis B , so this makes me question 1) why were you tested for hepatitis B surface antibody?? The reactive result suggests the presence of antibodies 2) I have indicated to you that this test by itself should not be over-interpreted and by itself does not indicate infection... On the other hand you should have hepatitis B surface ANTIGEN test repeated to confirm that this is non reactive still as it has been in the past and this would be good solid evidence that you indeed remain negative to this virus...3) I have pointed out to you that I am positive to this anybody test due to my vaccine history and explained that I do not have hepatitis B >>> I feel that I tried to be complete and accurate to you with what this test means and what should not be over- interpretedI hope this is helpful.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

first of all i took the test i need it physical test for my job now you said that my test was positive that wrong HBsAb is not an indicator of Hep B infection. It is a protective antibody against Hep B infection.according to the doctor 3.37 means that i am not immune because i did not take vaccine that all

to be immune you need to be 10

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

Right the HepB surface antibody test is indeed a check for protective antibodies. I think that it would be a good idea for you to consider receiving the hepatitis B vaccine as this would boost your immune system to protect you.

Anthony Bray MD
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

ok doc i am against vaccines i dont take vaccines so any way i think i have nothing to worry about regarding hep b infection


would you agree that i am not in any way have to worry about b virus becuase this test HBsAb {mIU/ml} 3.37 all is telling me that i dont have immunity to hep b

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

Ok I agree that this test is not diagnostic if hepatitis B infection --- yes. I would encourage you to not worry. If you had hepatitis B then your previous tests of HbsAg ( hep B surface ANTIGEN) would have been positive >>> all antibody tests to hep B would also be expected to be positive in an individual with actual infection. The antibody tests to hep b include antibodies vs the viral surface / core / and envelop....all of these tests would be expected to be reactive or positive in an individual with an infection. If you were a person with a recent infection then a high titer would have been the expected result if we only looked at HepBsAb test.... This is not a test to order for evaluating for hep B infection--- on this we agree....

I hope this helps to clarify the interpretation of this test . Best regards,

Anthony Bray MD

ok doc so i dont think that is urgent for me to take hep b test right now under these circumstances would you agree ?

Hello again,

No I do not think that you have any cause for worry here. Not for hepatitis and not for infection in general. What you describe is going to be a very common incidental type contact of surfaces.

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

That is no worry! Don't worry about that! You are correct in that such a minor injury should not be of concern to contract Hep B or C. You are right in the benign nature of ordinary environmental surfaces. If hepatitis were THAT easy to contract then practically everyone would have this disease but if course this is not the case.

My you seem to get into more than your fair share of minor accidents!! What is up with that??

At any rate > No > it does not sound to me to be a risky surface upon which you cut yourself. It sounds that you are describing perhaps a glass that was shattered months ago at your place, right? This would mean that it would NOT have been in recent contact with another person's bodily fluid in a time frame which would make it even possible for this to lead to infection with Hep B or C. So I think you are safe.

hi doc it's probably nothing to worry about but i was not able to sleep last night because i am thinking about this all night


my mouth guard touched a ammonia bottle and it is a foreign object i bought in the store so i dipped my mouth guard in ammonia and washed it with soup so i need to hear from you if it safe to put it in my mouth and there is no worries for any hep exposure

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello!

Yes your mouth guard should be safe to put back on your mouth. It sounds that you worried with regard to incidental contact between the mouth guess and an environmental object of very low risk. The ammonia should be effective to clean and disinfect but of course you do not want to put ammonia itself in your mouth. Washing with soup is clever as this would correct the ph and move electrolytes to very close to what you are used to.

So all this sounds fine to me. Quit worrying and sleep well! Take care!!

Right the spoons were not in any recent contact with other people in close proximity in time, right. This would mean that they would not be able to carry the Hep B or Hep C virus...

Well a more realistic scenario would be that you have a friend stop by your place and for some strange reason he is compelled to brush his teeth with YOUR TOOTHBRUSH!! He has hepatitis B in this imaginary scenario. That would definitely be putting you at risk to contract it!

As for the cook cutting his finger I suppose there would be theoretic risk there but ingestion might allow the virus to be neutralized by stomach acid. Ingestion tends to not be the method of transmission of hep B or C but I would not volunteer to drink blood to test this either !! So I would say maybe transmissible by your theoretical scenario but not the typical transmission at all....

I hope this helps to clarify . Best regards,

hi duc i have a miner cut not bleeding but look red that came in contact with a plastic bag that had sunflower seeds i bought it in a store is there any chance for hep ,b,c if some one probably touched this plastic bag in a store especially if they were bleeding i didnt see any blood on a bag but still let me know!

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

I think the scenario that you describe would still fall into exceedingly low risk for contracting hepatitis B or C. It is another situation where you have a minor skin injury which could potentially increase your susceptibility at this point if entry but as the wound has blood cot form and begins to heal then the susceptibility of the injured area would drop off dramatically very quickly.

Also the plastic bag would be a random environmental contact and your plastic bag contact would not be expected to harbor live hepatitis virus...

So I advise to not worry about this situation. It is a routine type scenario and extremely low risk. It is similar in nature to other contact potentials we have discussed in the past.

I feel that you have nothing to worry about in this regard.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have further questions or concerns. Best regards!

i scorched my self so hard with my fingers because it was so itchy until i started to bled now before hand my fingers touched paper money will i be exposed to hepatitis b ,c? there is no fresh blood involve on the paper money so i think i am safe but give me your overview any way

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello!

I think you are safe. This would be a mild type injury--- scratch that would close off quickly for one . This would mean low window of opportunity for the viruses that you fear.

The money would be heavily handled but it is similar in nature to other environmental risks.

Over very low risk of exposure!!

I hope this helps! Best regards!

Anthony Bray MD
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

ok you say i am safe but according to you it's still a very low risk so i am still concern because it is not 0 risk

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

It would be near zero risk... I do NOT think that you need testing!! I'm sorry that my phrasing seems to leave you with anxiety in the matter. I try to be accurate and honest in my replies. These type exposures happen on a routine basis and nobody would advise resting specifically for Hep B or C based on such very low risk exposures!!

I hope that you can escape unnecessary worry! Let me know if I can help further in that regard.

If I had a scratch and handled money then I would not worry about getting testing for myself at all for example!! There is essentially zero risk but perhaps not absolute zero. It would not make sense for you ( or anyone) to be tested for each very low risk exposure!! I hope that this helps and makes sense and hopefully puts it into the right perspective!

Take care and best regards,

i was out side touching foreign objects i came home i did not washed my hands i touched my computer mouse key than touched an open cut on my leg had some blood on my finger

any worries for hep since i did not wash my hands when i cam home

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again!

No you should not worry. What you describe is again basically similar environmental exposure of a very brief and low risk nature. If you went to doctor for treatment of cut in your leg with this history( I'm not saying you need medical treatment --- sounds like some Neosporin and bandaid...) but IF You saw a doctor for this then the idea of risk of Hep B or C would NOT even enter the mind of the treating physician!! It is such low risk it would not be on the radar!!

So it should not be so much on your radar either!! A cut on the leg and you happen to touch it and had not recently washed your hands... This is repeated scenario daily !!! We would all have Hep B and Hep C if the risk of such exposures had significant risk..

So try not to worry' I hope that this helps! Let me know if you have further concerns! Best regards !

hi doc i bought a pizza and the worker put a napkin using his bare hands in the box than he put the pizza , now the slices touched an area on the napkins were the worker touched it holding these napkins using his hands


any thing to worry about hep i am asking you this because i ate it

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

Not a worry with regard to Hep B or Hep C > No not at all with that scenario.

If your pizza delivery person had Hep A then that is orally transmitted but it is not common in the US. Occurs on occasion but uncommon. Try not to worry!!

i bought food that was put in a container how ever while going back home

the container was open so my food touched the other side of the top container and may have touched other foreign objects ,

 

i ate the food

am i at risk for hep b ,c

 

according to cdc i am not expose to hep b,c sharing utensils or contaminated food or water but please give me your over view

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello!

The scenario that you describe does not sound to be suspicious to me at all of you being exposed to hepatitis B it C . It sounds that you simply had a clean container with passing contact vs the upper surface if the lid . The food would not be dangerous to eat. I think you should relax in this instance .

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have further questions. Best regards,

Anthony Bray MD
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

thanks but do you agree according what cdc is saying that hep b,c is not spread through sharing utensils or contaminated food or water

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

Yes I agree that hepatitis B or C is not transmitted by food / water / utensils . That is a true statement. Hep B or C is transmitted by blood or intimate contact. You do not get this infection via food . Similarly it would not be transmitted by food utensils or water.

I hope this is helpful. Let me know if you have ongoing concern in this regard . Take care ,

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 12 months ago.
Hello!

It sounds that the conditions of the air in the bag may have changed to bring out condensation ...do you think this may have been the case?? At any rate I do not see this as being a situation of risk for hep B or C.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further concerns. Best regards,

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 11 months ago.
Hello again,

Yes I agree. Since you have had the broom for years then it could not be carrying hep B or C virus from another person. So you are safe from hep B or C in this situation .

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 11 months ago.
Hello again - and Happy New Year !!

As you live alone the prick of the skin would not be expected to carry any risk of hepatitis B or C. These would be at risk of you pricked yourself on a used hypodermic needle for example but a random scratch on a household object would not harbor this virus ..

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 11 months ago.
Hello again!

No roaches are not going to give you hepatitis ...

You live alone and with no one there to give you hepatitis the cuts or abrasions that you may get within your home would not carry risk to you as far as hepatitis ..

So try not to worry in this regard!

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 11 months ago.
Hello,

I don't think that you should worry about this situation . The glass would have just touched the outer aspect of the lips and this should not be risky to you. No one would advocate testing following such a low risk contact ...

hi doc ok i earning money playing vioiln in ny subway so i sit in a chair and playing because i work many hours now i injured my self at home from that chair i am using in the subway how? the tip button of the chair leg brazed my leg at home and i bled a little now that area which is the tip bottom of the chair leg were i brazed my self was touching the subway floor so my question if i should worry about hep b,c since that floor thousands of people walking on it let me know

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 10 months ago.
Hello again,

No -- you would not be at risk for Hep. B or C if I follow this injury that you describe. You scraped your leg on the chair while at home-- correct? The tip of the chair had been on the subway floor... So I would see that the circumstances would bother you psychologically but it does not sound to me that this would place you at risk for Hep B or C. It would require a series of unlikely transfers of virus for this to cause such infection. You did not come into contact with any fresh blood or body fluids from this I would say so risk of hepatitis infection would be nil ...

I hope this helps. Best regards,

if a woman giving oral sex to a male will there be a risk to hiv hep b,c?

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 10 months ago.
Hello,

If a woman HAS HEP C then sexual contact is a potential means of transmission - yes ... Most people do not have hep B or C of course and even if the woman had this disease then the risk of transmission for a given sexual encounter is not high. ( I have had patients in which one married partner had hep b or C and the other partner remained negative --- even for years ) so oral sex would have potential for transmission but it is not that high but it is not free of risk either.....

I hope this is helpful to you. Let me know if you have other questions . Best regards,

Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 10 months ago.
Hello again!

No there is nothing in your description there that would be of concern for hepatitis B or C.

I would not advise washing your hands with ammonia as I would expect this to be rather harsh on your skin!! I think regular soap or if you prefer an antibacterial soap would do fine for you!! I would advise that you stick to a product that is intended for skin use however!!
