What pecautions do I need to take to keep my 8 and 10 year old children safe from my and my husbands hep c. We are in the very early stages. Not sick yet or........
I am just a little freaked out by this.....................Thanks annie
don't be scared. Hep c is passed by blood to blood contact. So, don't bleed on the kids! there is much to know about hep c, and there is real progress in the treatments. "priorityhealth.Com" has tons of help concerning that and many other health problems. You can learn a lot there and of course, there are many other sites and chats to go to.
For this disease, there are many factors to consider. I know personally, two couples that have been married for 25+ years and only one spouse has it, as the other stays viral clean. So, don't worry about the kids, they are fine.
Remember, education is key when dealing with a new bug. Read all you can and then ask questions. This is a fairly new disease to our medical professionals, but not to the world.
Good luck and good health to you and your family. Slobonthebus
