The hepatitis B virus causes a liver infection called hepatitis B. (HBV). A person can be infected with HBV and transfer the virus to others without even realising it.
Fever, joint discomfort, exhaustion, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay coloured faeces, jaundice, and other HBV symptoms include:
Children who are exposed to a hepatitis-causing virus are more likely to get the disease. Autoimmune liver disease is one of them.
HBV is spread when blood, sperm, or other bodily fluid from someone who has the virus enters the body of someone who does not.
People who are at a higher risk of HBV infection or consequences from an undetected HBV infection can get screened. The doctor may examine their liver to see whether it has been damaged.
Although there is currently no treatment for HBV, it can be prevented by receiving an efficient vaccine and using antiviral drugs.
An acute HBV infection has no specific therapy, cure, or medicine. The type of supportive care required will be determined by the symptoms.
People can contract hepatitis B through coming into touch with the infected person's bodily fluids. Hepatitis C is carried primarily through blood to blood contact.
A person's chance of contracting hepatitis B can be reduced by taking the hepatitis B vaccine. Chronic hepatitis C is often treatable by doctors. Testing should be discussed with a doctor.
