What is Hepatitis C
Hepatitis C is an infection of the liver caused by the hepatitis C virus. It can cause inflammation (swelling) and fibrosis (scarring) of the liver tissue, and sometimes significant liver damage. Its is most often transmitted through the sharing of needles, the receiving of infected blood products, or unprotected sex.
Hepatitis C causes serious liver disease and effect millions of people worldwide. Many people with hepatitis C have no symptoms until the later stages but symptoms, should they occur, may include:
- Bleeding easily
- Bruising easily
- Poor appetite
- Yellow discoloration of the skin and eyes (jaundice)

- Itchy skin

- Spider-like blood vessels on the skin (spider angiomas)
