Hepatitis Resources


Infectious hepatitis is a disease caused by a virus that results in the liver becoming enlarged, often with fever and jaundice (yellow discoloration of the skin and/or eyes). The three most common types are hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C.

Viral Hepatitis Infections - Wisconsin Department of Health Services

Hepatitis A
This disease is spread to others through contaminated food and water. It is usually the most mild form of hepatitis.


Hepatitis B
This disease is spread most commonly by infected blood and body fluids through sexual contact or injection.Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis C virus. Sometimes infection is only an acute illness but most often becomes a chronic condition that can lead to cirrhosis of the liver and liver cancer. Transmission is through contact with blood of an infected person.

To those persons who test positive, the Brown County Public Health Division provides limited services, some of which include education, referral for ongoing care, vaccines, and assistance in testing contacts. Below are reputable links for more information:
