My kid who is just 16 months old got very sick and he was in ICU (Unconscious, swell body and blood vomiting). We got the results of hepatitis B as below HBSAG---non reactive---Negative ANTI Hbc --- Reactive --- 2.85 and then after One week of above test doctors asked for Hepatitis B PCR QUALITATIVE which came NEGATIVE Now I am totally confused if my kid needs further treatment. After 2 weeks of first test , Now clinically he is fine. Do I need to go for further test or treatment of Hepatitis B ?

Unlikely, but ask a pediatric gastroenterologist.
