Dear sir
i want to take your time again and describe another incident.
once i went to a barber and the the barber used a very thick comb and he was so rough with the comb which i could feel the comb teeth touching my scalp and he were doing it very fast ? The comb might cause some scratches on my scalp since the comb was very thick.do u think this incident is a risk for hepatitis c???
HI. No, there is absolutely no risk here for hep c. Even if the comb did happen to scratch your scalp, first off it would be very unlikely that the comb had active hep c virus on it, and, second, the virus isn't transmitted through scratching like that

Still no possibility of transmission that way
