Were you looking for information about Hepatitis B? Hepititus B is a common misspelling of hepatitis B.
Hepatitis B is one of several types of hepatitis (liver inflammation). It is caused by an infection with the hepatitis B virus. A few of its symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, yellowing of the skin or eyes (also known as jaundice), and a low-grade fever.
Many acute cases of this illness get better on their own, but the chronic variety often requires treatment with medications. Treatment options depend on the type a person has. For the acute type, treatment involves supportive care, which consists of treating any symptoms or complications that may occur as a result of the disease. For the chronic type, however, there are a number of medicines that can help slow down liver damage and possibly prevent complications of the disease. The best way to prevent this disease is through a vaccine.
