Like I al­ways say, preven­tion is the best treat­ment. Prac­tic­ing good hy­giene which in­cludes fre­quent hand wash­ing is one of the best ways to re­duce the spread of hepati­tis A. It is es­pe­cially im­por­tant to wash your hands af­ter us­ing the toi­let, chang­ing a di­a­per or be­fore pre­par­ing food. There is also a vac­cine for hepati­tis A that some trav­ellers de­cide to get be­fore they go on va­ca­tion. To add to this, it is al­ways a good idea to re­search the re­sort or ho­tel that you are plan­ning on stay­ing at to see if the wa­ter is safe to drink and that they have not had any hepati­tis A out­breaks re­cently. It is good prac­tice to peel and/ or wash all fresh fruits your­self and only drink bev­er­ages of known pu­rity. When­ever pos­si­ble, drink only bot­tled wa­ter and use it to brush your teeth. Fi­nally, avoid un­der­cooked or raw meats or fish.

Al­though hepati­tis A is usu­ally a not a life-threat­en­ing in­fec­tion, it can cause sig­nif­i­cant dis­com­fort and in­con­ve­nience. Thus, keep th­ese sim­ple tips in mind and your liver will thank you for it.

Un­til next month, drive safely.
