Hepatitis C is one of the most widespread Hepatitis infections today. It is brought about by the Hepatitis B virus and is transmitted in different ways. Once it infects a person, it can lead to all sorts of damage and harm to the liver.


The majority of Hepatitis C cases do not trigger visible signs and symptoms. But, once they do happen, they are usually the following:

  •  fever
  •  jaundice
  •  nausea
  •  appetite loss
  •  vomiting
  •  dark-colored urine
  •  headache
  •  tenderness
  •  enlargement of the liver


Hepatitis C tests are available to accurately diagnose this infection. People may use a rapid Hepatitis C test kit to conduct the test on their own and get a reliable test result in about 15 to 20 minutes.


There is no cure available to treat Hepatitis C. There is also no vaccine for it. However, there are medications that can be taken to manage the symptoms.
