Hepatitis A - What are the symptoms?

The symptoms of hepatitis A infection range (depending on the age of the infected person), from a mild disease with few or no symptoms in children to more severe symptoms in older children and adults.  Early symptoms include fever that quickly develops, generally feeling unwell, loss of appetite, nausea, discomfort in the stomach area and yellowing of the skin and/or eyes (jaundice) may also occur a few days after the first symptoms begin because of the resulting liver infection.  Hepatitis A does not cause long-term liver disease, and most people recover in less than two months.6.  This is not a full list of symptoms that can occur with hepatitis A infection. If you feel unwell while travelling or when you return home, make sure you see your doctor or travel medicine specialist and let them know what countries you have visited.4
