Sharing water bottle, Chance of getting Hep ?

Hi there.

I have no records of Hep before.

Recently, ive shared a bottle of Soda with my niece aged 11. I am pretty sure there were saliva involved during the drinking. Ive a slight cut on my lips due to dry lips.

Is there any possibility of her or myself getting Hep a,b,c?

Thank you very much for your answer.

ask her if she has any hepatitis, it is easier

probability is low anyway and you have vaccine and immune globulins for A and B
hcv is fully curable now, ask her if she had any infection

Thank you for your reply stef.

Nope, apparently she does not have any hepatitis.

Probably i'm quite paranoid due to having a small cut on my lips where it will combine with the saliva during the drinking process.

Is it possible that the virus could be transmitted this way?
