No such thing: There is no "border line" between hepatitis A and B. They are entirely different viruses and cause very different diseases. Hepatits B often is chronic, but there is no such thing as chronic hepatitis A. Discuss with your personal physician -- or post a more detailed question. For example, do you have blood test results? Have you been exposed? Vaccinated? Are you under treatment?
