Ayurveda Specialist 's  Response
1. was any investigation done to rule out filariasis from elephantiasis?
2. you haven't mentioned about any symptoms arising out of pathology?
3. as your brother is suffering from filariasis, either he has or will sooner or later, suffer from Lymphatic filariasis i.e. blockage of lymphatic channels and swelling of scrotum i.e. hydrocele.
3. as both these conditions are diabling and disfiguring seek prompt medical care whether the infection is active or has progressed to complications.
4. DEC (hetrazan) is the drug of choice in these conditions

welcome to healthcaremagic
If diagnosed case you need the antibiotic therapy (diethyl carbamazine) is the mainstay of therapy for filiariasis. The dose is 6 mg per kilogram of body weight given as a single dose daily. The total duration of treatment is for about three weeks. Ivermectin is another drug that can be used. It is particularly useful against the parasites Bancrofti and Brigia.
