What is Hepatitis B?

Hepatitis B, also known as Hep B,  is a viral illness of the liver that is spread through blood and body fluids.

It usually causes no noticeable symptoms in adults and typically resolves on its own within a few months.

In children, however, it frequently lingers for years and can eventually lead to severe liver damage.

Hepatitis B is less prevalent in the United Kingdom than in other regions of the world, yet certain populations are at particularly high risk.

This includes individuals from high-risk countries, those who inject drugs, and those who engage in unprotected sexual activity with  multiple sexual partners.

High Risk areas for Hep B

Hep B can be found throughout the globe but it is particularly common in the following parts of the world.

  • east and southeast Asia
  • sub-Saharan Africa
  • the Indian subcontinent
  • the Pacific Islands
  • parts of South America
  • southern parts of eastern and central Europe
  • the Middle East

Majority of the new cases in the UK are found in people who travelled from these high risk areas.

If you are travelling to these areas, it is recommended that you speak with a travel health expert 6 to 8 weeks before.  You might be advised to get vaccinated and also offered advice on other precautions that you can take against Hep B infection. 

Main symptoms of Hep B

Only a small percentage of patients with hepatitis B develop symptoms, which usually appear 2 or 3 months after being exposed to the hepatitis B virus.

Hepatitis B symptoms can include:
