Hello all, Bit off topic for this site, but as a member for some years I know there is a wealth of info amongst you all. My partner has just been diagnosed with HCV. Last year she was diagnosed with ricketsia/Lyme although I don't see any evidence of a specific test for lyme. This all came about after she was bitten badly on the scalp by ticks and became very ill. My question is, can HCV be transmitted by ticks, it seems highly likely to me but after a good old Google I can find no info on this subject. Any help would be very much appreciated.
