Hepatitis C Possible infection!
Hi! Im quite concerned about a possible infection. Last saturday i was at a party, i managed to take a bite off a apple wich a person with hep c had also eaten from. i didn´t swallow it, and i took a mouthful of pure liquor afterwards. This may be a dumb question from a complete paranoid person, but is there any way i could have been infected? I´ve read up on some of the symptoms, and i have not had any of them. Been literally counting the hours since the night..

No.

Blood to blood contact only...not going to get it from eating food, it doesn't transmit that way
