Hello,

Here is some more information on hep B and hep D that could help you and your daughter. If your daughter has ever had sex with her boyfriend without using a condom or shared personal items like razors or toothbrushes, she could have hep B. The good news is that in most cases hep B goes away on its own. The link above has more information you should read through. The only way that your daughter could have hep D is if she is already infected with hep B. You should make an appointment to have your daughter tested (a simple blood test can tell if she has or has had hep and your doctor can also tell you if she has been previously vaccinated against the virus.

Best wishes,
Atti
