Does Hepatitis B Infection Re-occur?

Hep A - no Rx, only hand hygiene, check sources of food?
Hep B - Once cured (3 months after drug therapy & negative test), does it recur or totally cured? A specific drug used to treat?
Hep C - same as Hep B (source of contamination is blood) essentially?
Great information. Thank you very much.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Reactivation of hepatitis B refers to the abrupt increase in hepatitis B virus replication in a patient with inactive or resolved hepatitis B.
Reactivation can occur spontaneously, but more typically is triggered by immunosuppressive therapy .
