  • What is Hepatitis A?

    Hepatitis A is an inflammation of the liver caused by a virus. Hepatitis A is a common problem in developing countries. In Australia, most cases are observed in people returning from travel from high risk countries.

    How is it transmitted?

    Hepatitis A is often transmitted through poor hygiene and contaminated food. The Hepatitis A virus is present in the faeces of infected persons; as such, it can be spread sexually by oral or anal contact. It is rarely transmitted by blood transfusion (although possible).

    I had just returned from South East Asia. How do I know I contracted Hepatitis A? What are the symptoms?

    It usually takes 28-30 days from contact with the virus until a person starts showing symptoms (incubation period). Hepatitis A sufferers usually experience the following symptoms:

    • Loss of appetite
    • Generalised aches and pains
    • Nausea, vomiting
    • Abdominal pain
    • Dark urine and pale faeces
    • Yellow eyes and skin

    What is the treatment?

    This is not exactly what you want to hear: there is no specific treatment. In most cases, patients usually get better within few weeks. Some people have symptoms for up to 4 – 6 months.

    What can I do to prevent it?

    You need to observe high hygiene standards by washing your hands properly, particularly after going to toilet, before eating and preparing food.

    You’ll also need to stay away from people with Hepatitis A. People with hepatitis A should take rest and should not go to work or school until they are no longer infectious.

    The best way to prevent hepatitis A is vaccination. There are two doses of vaccination. If you are travelling countries where hepatitis A is a common problem, we recommend getting both shots before your departure.
