What Does Discharge Of Mucus During A Bowel Movement Indicate?
Thanks for query.
Amebiasis is a parasitic infection of the intestines caused by the protozoan Entamoeba histolytica.Amebiasis is contracted by consuming contaminated food or water containing the cyst stage of the parasite. It can also be spread by person-to-person contact.
It may apso be bacterial in nature caused by Shigella and Campylobacter bacteria that cause bacillary dysentery. They penetrate the lining of the intestine, causing swelling, and diarrhea usually in form of pus.
I would suggest you to go for few tests
Ultra sound abdomen
Stool test under microscope
Complete blood count
Total and differential leucocyte count.
If stool test is positive for bacterial or protozoal infection.Start taking Zithromax(Azithromycin 500 mg once daily) and secnidazole 1 gram daily for 5 days.
Along with it take Fybrogel husk,It will increase the bulk of your stools.
Eat light and easily digestible food.
Drink plenty of water and electrolytes to maintain rehydration.
