What Is Amoebiasis

Amoebiasis is an infection caused by a single celled parasite called Entamoeba histolytica. Also known as amoebic dysentery, this disease is contagious and spreads from an infected person to another. Amoebiasis is common in tropical countries where sanitation is poor and hygiene compromised. It occurs in India, Africa and parts of Central and South America. 

What Is Bacterial Infections

  • Bacteria are the single celled, microscopic organisms which are essential for many processes of human body and a few of them are responsible for causing harm. A bacterial infection refers to the condition when there is accumulation of harmful bacteria inside or on the human body.

Symptoms Treated With SERCOS 10GM CREAM

What Are The Symptoms Of Amoebiasis

Only 10-20% of people infected with the parasite will develop symptoms. It takes about one week to 4 weeks for symptoms to appear. Symptoms include:

  • Abdominal cramps.
  • Nausea.
  • Vomiting.
  • Fever.
  • Diarrhoea.
  • Blood or mucous in stools.
  • Weakness.

Bacteria invade the walls of the intestine and enter the blood stream. Very rarely, they may travel to other internal organs like liver, lungs, heart or even brain. Invading internal organs may potentially cause:

  • Abscesses.
  • Severe infections.
  • In rare cases, death.

What Are The Symptoms Of Bacterial Infections

  • The symptoms of bacterial infections are running nose, cough, headache, restlessness. The signs of bacterial infection can be easily confused with viral infection; doctors can make out the difference by examining particular signs.

Causes of diseases where SERCOS 10GM CREAM is used

What Are The Causes Of Amoebiasis

  • The Entamoeba histolytica lives in the intestines of humans. They can be transmitted to others by way of faeces. The bacteria are passed out of the intestines through faeces. When a person drinks water or consumes food contaminated with the infected faeces, they are at risk of contracting amoebiasis.
  • The bacteria enter the human body and settle in the digestive tract. Here they multiply and migrate to the large intestine. They burrow into the walls of the colon (large intestine) and damage the tissue causing colitis and bloody diarrhoea.
  • Amoebiasis can also spread when an infected person does not wash hands properly after passing stools. The bacteria travel from his hands to anything that he touches, thereby posing a threat of infection to whoever comes in contact with the infected object.
  • Amoebiasis can also be transmitted sexually, especially in men to men sex.
  • This disease can also spread while irrigating the colon( where the colon is flushed with fluids to remove waste)
  • People who are travelling to countries where this infection is rampant may get infected and carry this disease back to their countries.

What Are The Causes Of Bacterial Infections

  • Bacterial Infections can be caught by someone’s sneezing, coughing, sex, contaminated food or water, infected pets or livestock.
