Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver, which is the organ responsible for filtering the blood and fighting infection. Hepatitis usually causes symptoms such as jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes), abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, and loss of appetite. Hepatitis symptoms may range from no signs of illness to severe illness. Hepatitis may be caused by heavy alcohol use, toxins or some medications, which are not contagious forms of the disease. However, it is more likely to be caused by a virus which is contagious. There are three main types of viral hepatitis in the United States. Although the symptoms of these diseases may be similar, the viruses and the way they are transmitted are different.
