Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Treatment for acute hepatitis B infection
If your doctor determines your hepatitis B infection is acute — meaning it is short-lived and will go away on its own — you may not need treatment. Instead, your doctor will work to reduce any signs and symptoms you experience while your body fights the infection. Your doctor may recommend follow-up blood tests to make sure the virus has left your body.

Treatment for chronic hepatitis B infection

Antiviral medications.

Liver transplant

It's important to talk to your doctor about which treatment he feels it's best for you.
