The most important thing is to find a primary healthcare provider. Your primary healthcare provider can order any tests you need, explain your treatment options, and coordinate your treatment.
It’s important to avoid alcohol and other drugs like acetaminophen (the active ingredient in Tylenol and Vicodin) when you have hepatitis because they can further damage your liver. In general, you want to eat healthfully, get plenty of rest, and exercise moderately. Don't take any new medications, including herbal or over-the-counter drugs, without talking to your healthcare provider first.
If you know you have hepatitis B or C, you can protect others by using condoms during sexual activity; not donating blood, body organs, tissue or semen; covering any cuts or sores you have to prevent spreading infectious blood or secretions; not sharing personal hygiene items such as razors or toothbrushes and not sharing needles or any other works.
If you have hepatitis A, it’s important to wash your hands well so you can help keep other people healthy. It’s also best to avoid all sex until your healthcare provider says the illness is over. If you do have sex, make sure you and your partner avoid any anal contact, don’t share sex toys, and wash your hands before and after sex.
