Jaundice in itself is not a disease but a sign occurring as a result of many other diseases. Jaundice is a condition wherein blood in a patient contains high levels of the chemical bilirubin and this in turn causes yellowish staining of the skin and sclera.

Jaundice is associated with a number of other diseases and treatment to jaundice actually involves identifying the actual cause and treating it effectively. Neonatal jaundice often cures itself after a few days of birth without any treatment.

Jaundice caused from viral hepatitis also does not have a proven treatment method, since there is no specific medication. Treatment is only supportive in this case with the patient being advised to bed rest, avoiding alcohol and the like.

Where jaundice is caused by gallstones urgent medical attention and administration of antibiotics is required. Treatment of alcoholic hepatitis involves getting alcohol out of the system of the patient and if possible abstaining from alcohol permanently.
