Mode Of Transmission Of Hepatitis B?
Hello, for transmission of HBsA can it be through borrowing clothes from HBsAg disease ??
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
HBsAg is an antigen that is on the surface of the Hepatitis B virus. People who do hepatitis B serological tests and get positive HBsAg results are said to have Hepatitis B.
Basically the hepatitis B virus can be transmitted through contact with body fluids of hepatitis B sufferers. Body fluids that can transmit this virus include blood, semen, vaginal fluid. This virus can also be found in other bodily fluids such as saliva, sweat, urine, feces, but the amount is so small that the risk of transmission through other fluids is very very small, almost non-existent. Ways of transmitting hepatitis B include:
unprotected sexual relations with hepatitis B sufferers
use syringes together with hepatitis B sufferers
use personal equipment such as toothbrushes and shavers with hepatitis B sufferers
there is direct contact with injured skin with blood or body fluids with hepatitis B
puncture needles or other sharp objects that are exposed to body fluids of hepatitis B sufferers
childbirth (from mother to baby)
Hepatitis B will not be transmitted from food or drinks, using cutlery together, using the toilet together, swimming, hugging, kissing, holding hands, coughing, or sneezing. Exchanging clothing with hepatitis B sufferers will also not transmit the hepatitis B virus, but exchanging clothing (which has not been washed) can increase the risk of transmission of other diseases such as scabies and fungal skin infections (tinea).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
