General & Family Physician Dr. Vasudha Jayant Athavale's  Response

Stool examination has focused on the basic cause Don't worry,you will be alright with following treatment.But still you are not releaved in 10 days you may need few more investigations.

Ascariasis or round worm infection affects gastrointestinal &respiratory system as well. The amoebiasis gives rise to stmoach pain. So the symtoms you have are due to a combined effect of both.

If you are an adult, You should take -

-Tab Mebex 1 rab. to be chewed twice a day after food for 3 days (to be repeated as per dr's advice)

-Tab. Metrogyl 400mg. twice a day after food For 5 days.

-tab histac300mg twice a day after food for 7 days

-cap. neutrolin b once a day afer food for 10 days.

-Syrup vitazyme 2 sp. twice a day for 10 days.

Avoid spicy food. Eat light,fresh ,homemade food.Plenty of fluids

Be careful about hygine -personal as well as while cooking.

Drink boiled water.

Check for need of preventive dose/treatment to family members.

The compleate cure needs a follow up upto2-3 yrs so be in touch with your dr. till then .
