Before thinking about how to get rid of parasites in the body, it would be good to conduct tests to confirm the presence of intruders and determine their type. Finally, any treatment can have side effects, which means that treatment should be targeted, not pointless.
Types of parasites
The most common parasites found in humans are:
- roundworms (roundworms, earthworms);
- flatworms (tapeworms, tapeworms, echinococci);
- protozoa (amoeba, lamblia, chlamydia, trichomonas, toxoplasmosis);
The most common worms (parasitic worms) found in humans are pinworms and roundworms. Children most often suffer from enterobiasis (a disease caused by the presence of pinworms in the body) and infection with ascaris, due to the fact that the eggs of these parasites enter the body mainly through dirty hands. In the presence of pinworms or roundworms in one family member, as a rule, all household members become infected.
Among protozoa, giardiasis is the most common. They also enter the body as a result of poor hand hygiene.
Symptoms of parasite infestation
The most obvious symptoms of human infection with parasitic organisms:
- constipation or diarrhea, bloating;
- muscle and joint pain;
- allergic manifestations, skin rash, acne or eczema;
- obesity or excessive weight loss;
- sleep disorder, chronic fatigue;
- a sharp decrease in immunity.
How to get rid of parasites
In medicine, there are a large number of drugs that aim to remove various parasites from the human body. The most famous among them and often used are the following drugs for parasites in the human body:
- roundworm drugs;
- tapeworm drugs;
- flatworm tablets.
Every drug for parasites in the human body is targeted at a specific type of parasitic organisms, and a specialist can prescribe it only after conducting the necessary tests to identify a specific type of parasite. In addition, some medications to treat severe infections are only taken in a hospital under the supervision of a doctor.
All drugs aimed at cleansing the body of parasites generally act only on their adults, while eggs are not killed by such tablets. Therefore, as a rule, the course of taking such drugs should be repeated a few weeks after the first dose. Dosage and method of administration are strictly prescribed by a doctor and have significant differences for adults and children (in addition, a number of drugs are not allowed in childhood).
Antiparasitic drugs are very effective, but they have a major drawback - they are toxic and have many side effects. Therefore, they can only be prescribed to adults and children by a doctor.
The main side effects of anti-parasite pills include:
- nausea and vomiting;
- painful sensations in the abdomen;
- headache, dizziness, confusion;
- impaired coordination of movements;
- impaired liver and kidney function, renal failure;
- numbness or trembling of the limbs;
- rapid fatigue;
- sleep disorder;
- skin dermatitis.
Each drug has its own contraindications that can not be ignored. Before prescribing this or that drug, the doctor must take into account the general condition of the patient.
Medical treatment of parasites involves complexity, ie it cannot be limited to taking antiparasitic drugs, because along with them it is necessary to take drugs that aim to protect the liver, improve bile secretion, cleanse the intestines and strengthen the immune system. In addition, you will need antihistamines and medications that reduce the toxic effects.
