Hepatitis A Treatment

Is there a cure for hepatitis A?

Currently, there are no medications to cure the hepatitis A virus. Typically when you contract the virus, symptoms will last 2-6 months. These symptoms can feel like the flu, and doctors may even prescribe medications to treat these flu-like symptoms. Getting vaccinated with the hepatitis A vaccine can create antibodies in your immune system, protecting you from contracting hepatitis A if given prior to coming in contact with the virus.
