Hepatitis c and dating
It typically causes only a mild illness, and many people who are infected may never realize they're sick at all.
The virus almost always goes away on its own and does not cause long-term liver damage. Food can be tainted when it's touched by a person with hepatitis who did not wash his hands after using the bathroom.
You may feel a temptation to pull away from people you care about rather than risk them knowing.
Yet, keeping open and honest relationships is key to your well being.
If you have sex with someone who has hepatitis C, it is possible that you could acquire it.
The risk seems to be fairly low, but if you do decide to have sex with this partner you should definitely use condoms.
If you don't, and then go make yourself a sandwich, hep A virus might end up on your food, and then in you!
Vegetables, fruits, and shellfish (such as shrimp and lobster) also can carry hepatitis if they were harvested in contaminated water or in unsanitary conditions.
That's why it's so important to wash your hands before eating and after going to the bathroom.
It is also possible to acquire hepatitis C by sharing personal items such as toothbrushes, razors, nail files or nail scissors – these can become contaminated by tiny, invisible specks of blood containing the virus, which could then pass into someone else’s bloodstream through tiny sores or scratches.
