GIVING HEPATITIS B TO PARTNER
Your partner will want to avoid contact with your blood or other body fluids directly or on objects such as needles, razors, toothbrushes, etc. To be safe, you should clean household surfaces that might have your blood or other body fluids with a solution of 1 part household bleach and 10 parts water. To protect your partner and friends, co-workers, etc. you should cover any cuts, sores, or rashes you might have with bandages.
Hepatitis B is a very hearty virus and is more easily transmitted than HIV. But Hepatitis B is 100% preventable. If your partner(s) hasn't been immunized yet, he should get vaccinated right away. You can click here for more information on hepatitis and immunization services at San Francisco City Clinic.
