A doctor or nurse will ask you to provide a blood test to see whether your body is making antibodies to try and fight the hepatitis virus. You may also be referred to a liver specialist for a liver function test.
There is no specific treatment for acute hepatitis B and your symptoms can be managed with the use of over the counter medication. However chronic Hepatitis B can be treated using medication to slow down the spread of the virus and prevent any liver damage.
If you have symptoms you should get yourself tested to avoid infection developing and from transferring it to someone else.
