Dear Rajesh,

Your wife is diagnosed to have Hepatitis C with probably high viral load. In that case gastro-enterolgist gives treatment to control multiplication of Hepatitis C virus in body. The specific medicine given to control virus multiplication in body may cause some allergic reaction so its strongly advisable to contact/consult gastroenterologist to know actual cause of allergy. The rising level of SGOT/SGPT may be due to active multiplication of virus in body, is another reason to consult gastroenterologist to start appropriate treatment of hepatitis C virus.

Wish your wife a healthy life.
