Can we get HIV,HepC,Hep B, VDRL by sharing ear phones?
Transmission of HIV,Hep, syphilis not possible through sharing of ear phone
Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for posting your query.
By sharing ear phones, one can get bacterial or fungal infections, if someone has such infections or through improper hygiene. Diseases like HIV, Hepatitis B and C and syphilis can not occur through sharing of ear phones as they need exchange of body fluids or direct contact of infectious materials over some breached skin or mucus membrane.
Nothing to worry.
