  • Have you noticed your eyes or skin are turning yellow?

  • Do you feel fatigued?

Treatment for acute hepatitis

The treatment depends on the cause, but is mostly supportive with adequate fluids and removal of the cause e.g. alcohol. In the case of hepatitis virus infection, treatment can vary. Some forms of viral hepatitis get better on their own. Other hepatitis infections may be life-long and require special antiviral medications to try and cure. Hospitalization and regular follow-up may be needed to monitor the liver's wellbeing until it recovers.
