Hello there! As they say prevention is better than cure. First of all the best thing to do is to prevent the infection of Australia antigen which is a particle of Hepatitis B virus detected in the blood of an infected person. Hepatitis is transmitted via blood or blood products,body fluids and from mother to child. Infection can be prevented by taking Hepatiis vaccination which is freely available. A person infected with Hepattis B and australia antigen positive may not be symptomatic and and aggresive treatment is not required except for having a healthy lifestyle. If symptomatic then treatment is accorded as per the symptoms and immunoglobulins are also used. If you are not vaccinated by now then get your blood HbsAg test done and if negative then get vaccinated at your earliest to prevent the risk of getting infected. Take care!
