hepatitis B
Dec 10, 2005

My daughter had all 3 hepatitis shots in high school,she became sexually active in july.She's since been diagnosed with Hep.B.She is tired all the time&has fever spikes.What can we do?-help please!

Response from Dr. McGovern

Hepatitis B can be associated with some fever but not for any prolonged period of time. I wouldn't be confident that the only explanation for her fevers is hepatitis B. She needs a thorough history and physical examination by her physician and further testing to understand the reasons for her "fever spikes".
