The most common types of hepatitis are A, B, and C. Hepatitis A is usually a short-term infection while hepatitis B and C can cause long-term, or chronic, infections.A person can have both hepatitis B and hepatitis C at the same time. This article will examine the difference between these two viruses, the treatment options available, and the outlook for people who have an infection.Hepatitis B and hepatitis C are both viral infections that attack the liver, and they have similar symptoms. Exposure to the hepatitis B virus can cause an acute infection within the first 6 months. This short-term illness causes flu-like symptoms.Although it is possible to acquire hepatitis B through contact with infected blood, transmission often occurs through bodily fluids.Hepatitis B transmission may occur through sex, and a woman can pass the infection to a baby during childbirth.
