Can An 11-month-old Baby Sleep In The Same Place As Someone With Liver Disease?
I want to ask my mother-in-law, liver disease ,, and I can have a baby aged 11 months, can I sleep mixed in the same mattress
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Concerned liver disease that will spread from one individual to another individual that you mean in this question is likely hepatitis. Inflammation in liver cells or hepatitis there are several types, namely hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C.
The hepatitis A virus is transmitted through the oral faecal route, which is a virus that spreads food contaminated with the patient's feces due to poor sanitation and hygiene. To prevent transmission through maintaining environmental sanitation and personal hygiene by routinely washing hands with soap and running water, good water treatment, washing vegetables and fruit with clean water, avoiding consuming foods whose hygiene is not guaranteed, and avoiding sharing with eating utensils and bathing with hepatitis A sufferers.
Hepatitis B and C viruses are transmitted through body fluids and blood of sufferers. Mode of transmission is through sexual contact (vaginal, oral, or anal), shared needles and syringes, tattoos, body piercing, menedi pedi devices, and exposure to other needles that are not sterile, or accidental contact with patient needles. To avoid transmission, you must avoid the risk factors above.
Associated with sleeping one bed with the patient is not included in the route of transmission of the hepatitis virus, so you don't need to worry. To minimize the risk of infection with hepatitis can be vaccinated. Hepatitis A and B can also be prevented by vaccines, while hepatitis C cannot be prevented by vaccines.
That's all, hope you can help
