This is probably going to be my last question for a while because I know I'm obsessing too heavily on this and I don't want this to turn into anxiety. I'm asking this question because I want to get my facts straight and not be ignorant. Websites say that hep C cannot be killed with soap and water and can survive on a clinical or household surface for 6 weeks. If someone were to bleed directly on your skin or say by accident or you touched somebody else's fresh blood and the disease didn't pass through your skin because you didn't have any open wet bleeding wounds. To clean the blood, websites say to wash your hands with soap and warm water. Now I am confused because soap cant kill Hep C. So does the disease just stay on your skin for six weeks or does it just perish because your hand isn't a clinical or household surface or does it just wash away? For example my friends tongue was bleeding and she touched her tongue with her hand. I walked away to go talk to somebody and my friend touches the middle of my hair with both hands. Say there was still blood on her hands and that blood got on my hair. I washed my hair 3-4 times with shampoo and also swam in a chlorine filled pool. This may sound delusional, but is there a chance that since soap and water can't kill hep C virus that my hair contains the disease and I can somehow get it from my own hair if I touch it with a small wound on my hand?!!! Should I not touch my hair for the next 6 weeks? Is it possible for somebody else's blood that contains hep C to get on your skin and hair and not perish for 6 weeks? I'm sorry for bothering you with so may annoying questions.
