Brief Answer:
No possibility of spread of infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query at HCM
I understand your concern and situation

Hepatitis is spread through blood and infected body fluids. It is not spread by the manner you described. Although the virus can be found in saliva, it is not believed to be spread through kissing or sucking. So do not worry.

Hope I answered your query
