Hello doctor,
I recently shared a rolled ticket with another person (she said she's healthy) to snort a very little amount of cocaine. I'm not used to it and maybe I'm just paranoid. Is it possibile to get HIV or HCV in that way? Didn't notice blood on the rolled ticket and I definitely didn't have any open wound in my nose. Thank you so much.

While little in the world is impossible today, there is very little likelihood that you got either HIV or HCV that way. As a general rule, it is best to avoid sharing anything with someone who uses drugs, then you never have to worry about catching a disease.

Please let me know if you have questions.

Best regards,

Schuyler

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
