spreads from person to person. It is transmitted by the "fecal --

individual must come in contact directly with the mouth of a
susceptible individual. It is almost always true that the virus
infects a susceptible individual when he or she ingests it, but it
gets to the mouth by an indirect route.

Hepatitis B is usually transmitted through blood contact, but can also be transmitted on surfaces, through saliva, breast milk and sexual intercourse. There is no "antibiotic" that can treat a virus. You must prevent it with vaccinations.
