Depends on virus: Acute viral hepatitis is a self limiting infection. Hepatitis a is only an acute infection and does not progress to chronicity. For hepatitis b, about 10-15% of patients with acute hepatitis will develop chronic hbv. In contrast, for hepatitis c, 75-80% of patients with acute hepatitis will develop chronic hcv. Chronicity develops when the immune system is unable to clear the virus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes, theoretically: Yes, it is theoretically possible that someone could get acute retroviral syndrome upon reinfection with another strain of HIV. First of all, reinfection is very, very rare but not impossible. However, reinfection with a second strain (perhaps more powerful than the original strain) theoretically could cause an acute retroviral syndrome as it is a completely new infection altogether. ...Read more
Either: Hepatitis b virus dna means that there is presence of the virus in your body. This can be found in both acute and chronic hepatitis. If your liver enzymes are elevated in low numbers or normal and you have no symptoms such as jaundice, nausea/vomiting, changes in stool/urine color and a positive test, most likely hbv is chronic. High liver function tests, bilirubin counts + symptoms = acute hbv. ...Read more
Acute hepatitis C infection doesn't always lead to chronic hepatitis C infection: But because a large majority of people with the acute infection go on to chronically harbor the virus, acute hepatitis C is serious. Acute hepatitis C infection can be treated, greatly reducing the risk of chronic infection. Unfortunately, hepatitis C infection is rarely diagnosed and treated in its acute stage because it usually causes no symptoms. Acute hepatitis C develops two weeks to six months after the hepatitis C virus enters your bloodstream. In the small proportion of people who get sick during the acute infection, signs and symptoms include: Jaundice, Dark urine, White-colored stool, Nausea, Pain in the upper right part of the abdomen. These signs and symptoms last for two to 12 weeks. Most acute hepatitis C infections today occur in people who share needles to inject drugs. Health care workers who have needle-stick injuries also are at risk. If you think you've recently been exposed to hepatitis C virus, it's important to get tested right away. Blood tests to detect hepatitis C virus proteins, followed by a later test to detect antibodies to the virus, can usually distinguish acute from chronic infection. Having acute hepatitis C infection makes a difference in the choice of treatment. ...Read more

Symptoms include: fever, muscle soreness, rash, headache, sore throat, mouth or genital ulcers, swollen lymph glands, joint pain, night sweats, and diarrhea. Not everyone with HIV has all symptoms. ...Read more

Bacteria vs. viral: Acute sinusitis is characterized by pus in the nose, significant post nasal drainage, pain and pressure in the face and pain between the eyes. You must differentiate this group of symptoms from a viral rhinitis (cold). Relief of symptoms are increased fluids, vitamin c, pain meds. But as always, you need a specific diagnosis. Patients use the term sinusitis very loosely. Get a diagnosis. ...Read more
