Unclear question: Do you have chronic hepatitis b? If not, do you work with patients with hep b? If you do, get vaccinated for hep b. I trust you follow universal precautions to prevent infecting yourself. Abstain from alcohol and hepatotoxic drugs like acetaminophen. If you are infected with hep b, you need to contact an infectious disease expert for treatment.
