Pus cells, Rbc, cyst in stool test, positive for e.histolytica, watery stools, slight fever, rashes, baby measles

my 1 year old daughter had a stool exam 2 weeks ago. 14-16hpf pus cells, positive for e.hystolitica. Rbc of 2-4hpf, cyst . At that time she had watery stool. Had on and off fever too. After 3 days, she developed a rash. Pedia said it was b aby measles . No more fever and watery stool after 3 days and as soon as the rashes came out all over her body. She was fine 5 days after. Now she passes stool once a day. Sometimes it s greenish brown but not watery. Is there a chance there was some mistake in the lab result of her fecalysis exam?

hi there, I think the results are not wrong but your daughter has gone into chronic infection phase wherein she is asymptomatic but might still be having the infection and passing out the cysts in the stool. Kindly get her stool exam done again and if its negative dont bother further but if she is still passing cysts then she needs to be treated as she is infective to others and may develope complications later, please do not neglect and get her stool checked now. Take care.
