I used a urinal and the ground felt wet I left and went to sit down the bottom of my shoe ran across the top of my other one. The shoes are kind of thin so was worried whatever I was walking in was going to get in my ingrown toenail wound, so I touch top of shoe and felt dry, I woke up this morning and realized I never washed my hands to eat after I did that. Could I be at risk of hepatitis is urine got on bottom of shoe, I've heard it can live up 7 days outside body can it also be transferred even If dried on bottom of shoe? Could I be St risk because I touched where the bottom of my shoe had touched and didn't wash my hands all night?

Please tell me if there are other ways of contacting hepatitis b other than through sexual contact. My husband swears I gave it to him and I got tested and don't have it. How else could he have contacted it? I don't believe he has been with anyone else.
