Itching in private parts. Blood test showed bacterial infection, elevated liver levels

Hi hope you can help my daughter is 21 doesn t drink, smoke or take drugs. She had blood test done as she was itchy in her private section. The results showed she had a bacterial infection which the dr prescribed antibiotics to clear it. The test also showed she had an elevated liver and she is to go back in 3 weeks for another blood test. What do you think this could be. She is a gym junkie, very fit and lean and a clean eater. Thanks Diane

Hello, Diken,
It would be helpful to know if all the liver enzymes were elevated and how high.
It is possible this could be secondary to the infection she had. If the liver
enzymes were detected to be high after she finished the antibiotics, that may
be a side effect of the drug. I am glad that she does not drink and is fit.
If the enzyme levels stay abnormal at three weeks re-test , she may need
complete Hepatitis blood tests to rule out Hepatitis B and C.
I would not be very much concerned at this point.
I wish her well.
