Hep B and C can become chronic infections, A can't. There are also lots of other non viral causes of chronic hepatitis. So yes, you can.

Hepatitis A is usually caught by putting something in your mouth that has been contaminated with the stools (faeces) of someone with hepatitis A.
It is usually an acute (short-term) infection. Although the symptoms can be unpleasant, it is rarely serious. Vaccinations for hepatitis A are available.

Hepatitis B is not very common in the UK: approximately one in 1,000 people are thought to have the virus.
The vast majority of people who are infected with hepatitis B are able to fight off the virus and fully recover from the infection within a couple of months. Vaccinations for hepatitis B are available.

The course of hepatitis C is unpredictable: some people fight off the infection and experience no ill health. Others may develop liver damage, which sometimes progresses to cirrhosis (severe scarring of the liver) and even liver failure. There is currently no vaccine to prevent hepatitis C.
Treatment with drugs called interferon and ribavirin can clear the infection in approximately half of those who are infected, but there are significant side effects.
