What is the treatment for jaundice?

With the exception of the treatments for specific causes of jaundice mentioned previously, the treatment of jaundice usually requires a diagnosis of the specific cause of the jaundice, and treatment is directed at the specific cause, for example, removal of a gallstone blocking the bile duct.

Eat and drink as much beet root product as you can. The more raw the better. As well as milk thistle to help regulate liver function. Some sort of Vitamin B supplement is also good to take while trying to recover from being/looking jaundice. I have read of these different things and their benefit in the research I have done about jaundice, and liver dysfunction.

I have jaundice from a bad reaction to azithromycin. I have been yellow and itching for the last 11 weeks. I probably have another 5 weeks or so before it goes away. In truth, there is no treatment but to wait and just treat the symptoms (no fatty foods in your diet, 50mg Benadryl for itching at night). The 50mg Benadryl will stop you from losing your sanity at the ITCHING. I have also been prescribed ursodiol (which barely helps with the yellow) and questran (which barely helps with the itching). If you have the same diagnosis as me, just be happy you aren't dead; not everyone survives the bad reaction to antibiotics.
