Dear Concerned.,

Thanks for writing to us.

Your son is having mixed infection(Bacterial as pus cells and RBCs are present /Amoebic as trophozoites of E.Hystolytica ) and infestation(Ascaris/trichuris(whipworm)/hook worm/enterobius (pin worm).

Kindly consult a Paediatrician who will prescribe an anti biotic/anti protozoal and anti heminthic ,all broad spectrum to treat the infection and infestation.

The child may also need adequate hydration and nutritiously balanced(Most of these kids are Anaemic and undernourished) hygeinically prepared food in future to prevent the recurrences.

wishing him a quick recovery,

Best regards,

Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan.
