What Are The Signs Of People Who Have Recovered From Hepatitis A?
Hello …. I want to ask .. Sunday I was finished opnem and when I check it out to the doctor of hepatitis A … How do you know if it’s fully recovered … my explanation is
Good morning, thanks for the question
Hepatitis A is caused by a hepatitis A virus infection. Transmission of the hepatitis A virus (HAV) occurs due to consuming contaminated food or drink from feces of individuals who have been previously infected, usually due to poor sanitation. Symptoms of hepatitis A include muscle and joint pain, fever, general weakness, no appetite, upper right abdominal pain, pale stools, thick bladder, yellow on the skin and sclera, or itching.
Most cases of hepatitis A are able to recover completely by having immunity to the virus throughout their lives, and only a very few cases cause fulminant hepatitis. Recovery is characterized by diminishing symptoms, even when a yellow complaint appears the virus is no longer active in the blood. Recovery generally takes place not in a short time, which is usually in 2-6 months. There is no specific treatment and only supportive.
Hospital treatment is only recommended if there is an acute liver failure. Treatment is shown to meet the intake of nutrients and fluids.
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 itching 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 being inflammatory.
7. Maintain personal and environmental hygiene by routinely washing hands and eating clean food.
That's all, hope you can help.
