What is Hepatitis A?

Hepatitis A, also known as Hep A, is a liver infection caused by a virus that spreads through an infected person’s faeces.
It is uncommon in the UK, however certain populations are more vulnerable. This includes people who go to places with poor sanitation, men who have sex with men, and those who inject drugs.
Hepatitis A is unpleasant, but it is usually not serious, and most people recover completely within a few months.
Some people, especially small children, may not exhibit any symptoms.

However, hepatitis A can sometimes continue for months and, in rare situations, can be fatal if it affects the liver function (liver failure).

What are the main symptoms of Hep A?

Hepatitis A symptoms appear roughly 4 weeks after infection, but not everyone gets them.

Main symptoms may include:
