Can saliva transmit Hepatitis b or C
I was talking to a friend of mine who is Hepatitis B/C positive and he splattered as he talked and particle of his saliva ended in my mouth. I am very afraid. What are the odds that I am infected? Please help

no

hep b is benigne for adults it clears 96% times by immune system with no liver damage left.most adults are already immune by hbv vaccine and even if you have no vaccine you can take if after exposure if you like

hepc is now fully curable with new antivirals plus peintf plus riba

you better look what chemicals in food do to slowly kill people, viruses can do little today

hbv gets chronic only by transmission mother to baby at birth when the baby has no immune system, in this case chronicity is 96%
