Most resolve: Spontaneous resolution of acute hep b infection is common, but must be followed carefully to make sure is not becoming chronic active hepatitis, which can be treated, if not cured. Do this now, because to ignore this disease can have lethal consequences.

Hepatitis B: Hepatitis b is a virus that tends to infect the liver in humans. Transmission from person to person is by intimate contact (sexual activity) or blood exchange. There is a readily available blood test to see if you have it, and there is a vaccination available (3 shots over 6 months) to prevent you from ever getting it. Hepatitis b can lead to chronic infection and cirrhosis, possibly cancer.
