Can A Child Born To A Mother With Hepatitis B Suffer From Hepatitis B Even If It Is Already Vaccinated?
Want to ask. I’m pregnant with the third blood test result and HBsag +. It turned out that after I checked the blood results from my first pregnancy, I was reactive, but first my obstetrician didn’t mind and I also didn’t understand what HBsag + was. My first and second child got the hepatitis b vaccine when they wanted to go home from the hospital but only that one time. I want to ask whether my first and second child should get the vaccine again? The thing is I just understood that hepatitis b can spread from mother to child.
Hepatitis B is an infectious disease that can be transmitted through bodily fluids such as blood. Hepatitis can also be transmitted from mother to child during pregnancy. So if you have HBsAg +, then this can indicate a number of things such as you are experiencing acute hepatitis B, or chronic (not acute) hepatitis. Even if it is usually if the HBsAg + level is needed further examination.
In women who have HBsAg + then it may cause your child also has HBsAg + yes. So that your child needs further examination. What you should know, the hepatitis vaccine cannot eliminate if your child has been exposed to hepatitis since birth huh. In addition, if HBsAg + is usually delayed vaccine administration.
therefore, to find out if your child needs to be vaccinated again or not, then you should check your child directly to a pediatrician, so the doctor can examine your child's condition further.
