Hepatitis A is a self limiting viral illness. It is an acute infection and is usually cured within 4-6 weeks with no permanent liver damage. Bed rest and maintenance of hydration is important. A strict no fat diet is recommended in such people. Did you check for other hepatitis infections like B & C? They could cause elevated bilirubin levels .Get an ultrasound abdomen done to rule out any obstructive cause leading to recurrent and persistent jaundice. Do write to us again with more queries.
