Question:
I have hepititesB i am practically cured only 20% is left. I am wondering if i can still spread the virus through kissing. My dad is a PA but he does not know how much of the virus can still affect another person. What i want to know how much of the virus in you can affect ppl who are not vaccinated.I aslo have another? It does not affect my body it helps more then affects me. It blocks out all new flu's etc and i have not gotten real sick in over 4 yrs. And i dont feel any of the symptoms that are supposed to occur what does this mean? Thank u for ur time.

Answer:
It is extremely rare (but both in theory and in - very occasional - reality possible) to transmit hepatitis B through mouth to mouth contact. Transmission by kissing alone is very rare indeed; saliva usually only transmits the virus during oral sex or biting. Other described sources of infection include an infected parent kissing the cut finger or scraped knee of a young child, sharing toothbrushes, or an a safety pin that has been in a parent's mouth inadvertently pricking the child. These latter cases are very rare but are the usual reason why hepatitis B transmission is said to be transmissible in this fashion. There is no medical reason that HBV infection can 'protect' against other infections.
