Hepatitis A is a contagious liver disease that can cause serious complications and even liver failure in some people with pre-existing liver disease and immune system illnesses. Most people get sick within 15 to 50 days after consuming products contaminated with this virus. Symptoms of a hepatitis A infection include fatigue, diarrhea, low grade fever, intense itching, abdominal pain, especially in the upper right quadrant, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), abnormal liver tests, dark urine, and pale clay-colored stool.
