Hi!
Hepatitis A is a self limiting viral illness. Hepatitis A is transmitted through ingestion of food or drinks contaminated with stool from an infected person, very rarely through blood transfusions and anal or oral sex .It is an acute infection and is usually cured within 4-6 weeks with no permanent liver damage. Hepatitis A causes fever, yellowish discoloration of skin and eyes, loss of appetite, joint pains, abdominal pain, and weakness etc.There is no treatment advised for this condition. Bed rest and maintenance of hydration is important. A strict no fat diet is recommended in such people. A very rare complication of hepatitis A usually seen in people with weakened immune system is liver failure. Do write to us again with more queries.
Best wishes!
