Does he have hepatitis C? If not no risk of transmission.

Was there any risk hepatitis c infected blood entered your blood stream through an open wet fresh  weeping injury? If not then zero risk.

Hepatitis c is not easily transmitted in a household setting. Hep c is in fact difficult to transmit in most circumstances.

The most common way to contract hep c is by the sharing of IV drug needles or having a blood transfusion prior to 1990 when the hep c antibody test was developed and the blood supply secured.
