Upper Stomach Pain In A History Of Hepatitis A?
hello, i want to ask
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Hepatitis A is caused by hepatitis A virus infection. Transmission occurs due to consuming food or drink contaminated with feces of individuals who have been previously infected, usually due to poor sanitation.
Symptoms of hepatitis A include:
1. Muscle and joint pain
3. General weaknesses
4. No appetite
5. Upper right abdominal pain
6. Pale BAB
7. BAK concentrated
8. Yellow on the skin and sclera
During the healing period it is still possible to experience the above complaints including abdominal pain due to inflammation of the liver. Generally healing to recover takes several weeks to several months. In the case of acute hepatitis A does not require special therapy, treatment is supportive to reduce the symptoms felt by the patient.
During the recovery period it is recommended to:
1. Get enough rest.
2. Consumption of analgesics if complaining of abdominal pain, consult a doctor for appropriate treatment options.
3. To reduce gatak complaints it is advisable to always create a cool environment, good air exchange, use loose clothing.
4. Consumption of food in small portions but often to reduce complaints of nausea.
5. Do not consume alcohol.
6. Do not take any drugs or herbal supplements without doctor's advice because it can burden the work of the liver that is inflammatory.
7. Maintain personal and environmental hygiene by routinely washing hands and eating clean food.
That's all, hope you can help.
