Treatment of gut parasite infection

Some parasitic infections are self-limiting and generally resolve with time. Meanwhile, symptomatic relief and adequate hydration result in complete recovery in most cases. Fluids can be given orally or even intravenously depending on the patient's grade of dehydration and general condition. Some individuals may need anti-parasitic medications like metronidazole or furazolidone for effective elimination of parasites from the gut. However, pregnant women should refrain from taking these medications in view of their harmful effects on their baby. Probiotic agents are recommended in individuals who are prone for parasitic gut infections. These probiotics help in re-establishing the normal intestinal flora which may have been disturbed by the intestinal parasites.
