|Is a month too quick for symptoms to show up?
Jan 11, 2014
Hi Dr. Taylor,
Would it be unusual to develop jaundice or other severe symptoms only a month after HCV diagnosis assuming the HCV was in the acute stage?
| Response from Dr. Taylor
No this can happen in the acute phase of hepatitis C. There are varied prentations of this new infection, and people can experience symptoms or not in a range of ways. Most people do not develop jaundice or other severe symptoms. Those who do have a higher chance of the body clearing away the infection in the first 6 months, without medications.
