Hepatitis Home > Viral Hepatitis Treatment

There are no specific medicines that can cure acute viral hepatitis. Therefore, acute viral hepatitis treatment is focused on dealing with any symptoms or complications that may occur. This is known as supportive care. Even without specialized treatment, however, most people recover completely within a few months.
For certain types of viral hepatitis, a person may not be able to completely get rid of the virus, and they will develop chronic viral hepatitis. The treatment options for chronic hepatitis will depend on the type. For some types, medicines are available; other types may require a liver transplant.
