Hepetitis B

Were you looking for information about Hepatitis B? Hepetitis B is a common misspelling of hepatitis B.
 
Hepatitis B is one of several types of hepatitis (liver inflammation). It is caused by the hepatitis B virus, which is spread through infected bodily fluids. A few symptoms of this condition include nausea, diarrhea, yellowing of the skin or eyes (also known as jaundice), and a low-grade fever. Among the people who are at risk are intravenous drug users, children of immigrants from disease-endemic areas, infants born to infected mothers, and healthcare workers.
 
Many acute cases get better on their own, but chronic hepatitis B often requires treatment with medications. Some examples of medications that can be used to treat chronic hepatitis B include telbivudine, entecavir, and lamivudine. The best way to prevent this type of hepatitis is through the hepatitis B vaccine.
