Hepatitis B is a viral infection that poses a threat to lives of the infected individual. The virus is passed on through blood and other fluids from the body. In cases of infection through blood, the virus is passed on when the syringe used on a person is not sterile and also through blood transfusion. It also spreads among people who interchange the injection used for illegal drugs. Also, the infection is passed on from one to the other through menstrual, saliva and seminal fluids. The symptoms of Hepatitis B viral disease do not manifest at first for some time. It is hence called as ‘silent infection' too. The symptoms once develop, the infected person may feel fatigue, pain in the joints, loss of appetite, nausea and vomit, mild to severe stomach ache. The symptoms can be acute to chronic in different cases. Due to its silent nature, many go undetected and spread the infection unaware through various means. During the critical state, the virus could be unknowingly passed on to the immediate household while handling them due to lack of symptoms of Hepatitis B infection. It can also slowly damage the liver of the infected person when not diagnosed timely. The treatment for Hepatitis B infection varies for the acute and chronic condition in patients. In acute infection, there may not be intensive care needed except the hepatologist may recommend adequate fluid intake and rest. While in the chronic state, it is mandatory to go for a regular check up and blood test and keep away from practices such as alcohol, drugs, unprotected sex. When the liver condition is monitored through blood tests and screened for the presence of cancer, it will reduce the possibility of risks for the person infected.
