Read about the story of the hepatitis E vaccine.
There are no medicines for treating hepatitis A after you get infected. If you have a mild case, your healthcare provider will probably prescribe rest, plenty of fluids, and a nutritious diet. While your body fights hepatitis A, you should avoid any medicines—over-the-counter or prescribed—that could damage your liver. You should also avoid alcohol during the recovery period, because alcohol also may damage your liver.
