Can I contract H Pylori through a human bite.

How do you catch Hp? From your mother when she kisses you? From brothers and sisters as a small child? From sexual partners as adults (kissing)? From dirty water (fecal contamination)? From animals? Who knows???

Can I contract H Pylori through a human bite.

Post by nancyhelico » Sun Dec 04, 2011 10:10 pm

Help! My parents both had stomach cancer and were infected with H Pylori. I was tested several years ago (after having contracted a rotovirus) and all biopsies were negative. 12 days ago a very autistic student bit me at school and the last 4 days I have had belching, gas, and stomach pains. Could I contract H Pylori from a bite to my forearm? She bit through a sleeve however the skin was broken. I am terrified as my father died of stomach cancer. My mother is a stomach cancer survivor.

Thanks for any guidance.

i have answered in your other post. however, i like to raise this, because both your parents have stomach cancer, your chance of stomach cancer would be higher with or without H. pylori.

H. pylori will perhaps increase the chance. So a regular check up (at least once a year) is important.

again, H. pylori will not be transmitted via biting your skin.
