welcome to HalthcareMagic
The EH cyst is a cyst or eggs of Entamoeba histolytica which are causing pain ;blood in stools please see if you have any cramping pain in abdomen which comes before stools and some times all through the day.If it is so then you need to take antibiotic like Metronidazole in proper dose which your doctor will advice.Also the best precaution in diet will be to drink only boiled water;avoid seafood;meat .Otherwise you can take a proper diet but if you have loose motions the take soft diet.
