People with acute hepatitis C usually do not have symptoms or early symptoms are mild. Symptoms that can occur include:
- nausea and vomiting
- loss of appetite
- abdominal pain, fluid buildup in the abdomen
- jaundice (yellow skin and eyes)
- dark urine, clay-colored stools
If you know you?ve been exposed to the hepatitis C virus, it's important to get tested. Early diagnosis of hepatitis C can help decrease the risk of severe damage to the liver.
