Before thinking about how to get rid of parasites in the body, it would be a good idea to conduct tests to confirm the presence of intruders and identify their type. After all, any treatment can have side effects, which means that the treatment should be directed and not meaningless.
Types of parasites
The most common parasites found in humans are:
- round worms (roundworms, pinworms);
- flatworms (tapeworms, tapeworm, echinococcus);
- protozoa (amoeba, lamblia, chlamydia, trichomonas, toxoplasmosis);
The most common worms (parasitic worms) found in humans are pinworms and roundworms. Most often, children suffer from enterobiasis (a disease caused by the presence of pinworms in the body) and ascaris infection, 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 the protozoa, Giardia 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, flatulence;
- pain in muscles and joints;
- allergic manifestations, skin rashes, acne or eczema;
- obesity or excessive weight loss;
- sleep disturbance, chronic fatigue;
- a sharp decrease in immunity.
How to get rid of parasites
In medicine, there are a large number of drugs aimed at removing various parasites from the human body. The most famous among them and often used are the following remedies for parasites in the human body:
- roundworm medicines;
- medicines against tapeworms;
- tablets for flatworms.
Each medicine for parasites in the human body is aimed at a certain type of parasitic organisms and can only be prescribed by a specialist after carrying out the necessary tests to identify a specific type of parasite. In addition, some drugs for the treatment of severe infections are only taken in a hospital under the supervision of a doctor.
All medications aimed at cleansing the body of parasites mainly act only on their adults, while eggs are not killed by means of such tablets. Therefore, as a rule, the course of taking such drugs should be repeated a couple of weeks after the first dose. The dosage and method of administration is prescribed strictly by the doctor and has 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 big drawback - they are toxic and have many side effects. That is why they can only be prescribed to adults and children by a doctor.
The main side effects of 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;
- fast fatiguability;
- sleep disturbance;
- cutaneous dermatitis.
Each drug has its own contraindications that cannot be neglected. The doctor must take into account the general condition of the patient before prescribing this or that remedy.
Medical treatment for parasites involves complexity, that is, one cannot limit oneself to taking antiparasitic drugs, since together with them it is necessary to drink drugs aimed at protecting the liver, improving bile secretion, cleansing the intestines, and strengthening immunity. In addition, you will need antihistamines and drugs that reduce toxic effects.
