Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern the history and the stool examination report that you gave here is indicative of protozoa infection and this need to be treated with the antiprotozoal medicine and the best option in my opinion would be Tab Metronidazole 400mg twice in day for seven days, hope this information helps you, have a nice day.
