Internal Medicine Specialist 's  Response

She is on initial infection is known as acute hepatitis B, meaning short-term inflammation of the liver. Most people are able to clear hep B from the body within six months of becoming infected.

If they clear it, they are no longer infected, nor can they infect others. Additionally, they now have hepatitis B antibodies, which will protect them from future reinfection.

So don't worry she is not recovering even after 6 months also from acute infection then please consult your hepatologist he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
