Hepatitis A is a highly contagious infection of the liver that is caused by the hepatitis A virus. The hepatitis A virus is one of several strains of hepatitis that cause inflammation and affect your liver's ability to function.
Vaccines are available for those who are at risk of contracting hepatitis A. The most likely cause of hepatitis A is contact or consumption of contaminated food or water, or coming into close contact with someone who has the virus. In mild cases, it does not require treatment. Many people make a full recovery without any permanent or serious liver damage. However, if you believe that you've been in contact with the hepatitis A virus, please see your doctor.
