Hepatitis A

Hepatitis AHepatitis A is a contagious disease that spreads from person-to-person. It is spread through fecal-oral contact, generally from person-to-person or from contaminated food or water. Contaminated food is the most common and occurs when an infected person is responsible for preparing or cooking the food.

Hepatitis A can also be spread among family members, roommates, through sexual contact, drinking contaminated water, raw or undercooked fruits, and vegetables, shellfish, and from people sharing illegal drugs.

Symptoms of Hepatitis A usually develop between 2 and 6 weeks after infection. The symptoms are usually not too severe and go away on their own, over time. The most common symptoms are as follows:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Low-grade fever
  • Loss of appetite
  • Rash
  • Fatigue
  • Jaundice
  • Urine is dark brown color
  • Pain in the area of liver
