Hepatitis -What You Need to Know

Posted on:

The virus is a highly contagious liver infection and is spread through contact with the feces of an infected person. Symptoms can include fever, vomiting, diarrhea, dark urine, clay-colored stools, and jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes). Although rare, hepatitis A can also lead to death. There is no specific cure for the virus and it can only be prevented through vaccination or good hygiene practices.
