Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hepatitis B is an infection of the liver parenchyma caused by a virus (Hepatitis B virus, HBV) which can last for a short time, but can also be prolonged (for months). Suffering from hepatitis B can increase the risk of experiencing liver failure, liver cancer, to cirrhosis. Therefore, people with Hepatitis B need to see themselves directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine in order to get the best treatment.
During the initial infection, hepatitis B often does not cause severe symptoms. However, along with the development of the disease, stomach pain can appear, dark urine, fever, muscle and joint pain, decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, weakness, fatigue, and skin and eyes that appear yellow. The diagnosis of this disease can be made through laboratory tests, ultrasound to liver biopsy.
Prevention of Hepatitis B can indeed be done one of them by administering the vaccine. However, the Hepatitis B vaccine is no longer effective if the patient has already been infected with Hepatitis B. What needs to be done on people suffering from Hepatitis B is to check their complaints to the doctor. With good endurance, Hepatitis B can heal by itself. Your doctor may also give you several types of medicines and ensure your nutritional needs and body fluids are met so that your body's immune system is optimal so that it can ward off viral infections independently. However, in cases of chronic hepatitis B, the treatment can be more varied, ranging from administering anti-viral drugs, interferon injection, liver transplantation, and so on.
Consult the best treatment directly to your doctor to prevent the risk of dangerous complications.
I hope this helps.
