The virus does not remain in the body after the infection has gone away.
Over 85% of people with hepatitis A
recover within 3 months. Nearly all patients get better within 6 months.
Since you are already having it for more than 7 months,I will advise you to consult a Gastroenterologist
and get all the viral hepatitis
markers done to know the exact virus responsible for your jaundice
,if at all some viral infection is responsible for your jaundice.
Your jaundice could be because of some other reasons besides hepatitis.
