C Diff is a bacteria carried in the intestine by many people without it making them ill. Is C Diff therefore contagious? It can be very contagious when it results in diarrhea which then causes fecal contamination.
Often the hand picks up c. difficile from a surface that has minute amounts of fecal waste. The bacteria can then find it’s way into the mouth via touch, food etc. Family and friends of a C Diff sufferer can usually protect themselves by hand washing after contact, before meals and after toilet visits.
