That was a little too much information, so I had to edit that part out.
The immune system can fight off viral hepatitis. In some people, it doesn't and then it becomes a chronic condition. I believe they give immunoglobulin after exposure to hep B.
Since this forum is for those who have already been diagnosed with liver disease, or whose loved one has been, I suggest you contact your doctor with any questions or concerns you have.
