Gastrointestinal infection, diarrhea, bacillus-shaped black specks post bowels. Are these eggs?

I recently had some kind of gastrointestinal infection. I had diarrhea once each morning for two days and I was nauseous, bloated, and had mild abdominal cramping for two days, with overactive bowel sounds. I had a fever one night and severe headache . The symptoms are now gone, but I now see perfectly round but almost bacillus-shaped black specks-very small- on the toilet paper after having a BM. Could these be eggs?

Hi, thank you for posting.

I have gone through your query and I understand your concerns.

All your symptoms show that you suffer from colopathy that is manifested with oxyure vermicularis infection.

In these cases the following tests are necessary:
1. Stool culture.
2. Abdominal ultrsound.
3. Liver function test.
4. Complete blood count.
5. Urine test.

Contact your infectologist and your gastroenterologist.

All the best.
Dr. Behar.
