How to treat hepatitis A
There is no treatment for hepatitis A. Most people with hepatitis A will feel sick for a few months before they begin to feel better.
Health care providers usually recommend:
- adequate nutrition
Some people will need to be hospitalized.
If you have hepatitis A, you should check with your health care provider before taking any:
- prescription pills
- over-the-counter medications
These can potentially damage your liver. Alcohol should also be avoided.
After you recover, you will likely be protected against getting hepatitis A for life.
