Welcome to healthcare magic!
The G6PD patients have frank contraindication for drugs that have oxidative properties, Because the hep.A&E speard through infected water and food, having two children sick from one disease is not unusual.
It is barely two weeks since your son has got the vaccine so he is susceptible for another 7-10 days and Hep.a vaccination does not protect against Hep.E.
If problem if frequent see a liver care doctor.

I hope this advise would be helpful for you.

Still if you have any queries or doubts, please write me back,
I would be happy to solve them.

Wish you a great health!

Hi welcome to HCMForum. Hapatitis is a highly infectious.
The second sons symptoms could be due to vaccination
or active disease .I advise you to consult a doctor to
exclude the active disease. Besides i advise you some
diet recomendations as give him more curd fruits juices
without or little oil foods. foods rich in carbohydrates
and proteins. i hope you are satisfied with my reply.
