In brief: Liver inflammation

This is a viral hepatitis.
The virus inflames the liver. It is spread by fecal-oral transmission. Symptoms like nausea, fatigu, headaches usually occur between 2-6 weeks of exposure. There is a vaccine to prevent hepatitis a and the hepatitis is never chronic.

In brief: Hepatitis A

This seldom needs any form of treatment and is mild and self-limiting.
Rarely produces very severe infection, recovery without permanent damages is the most probable outcome.
