Water contamination is a major problem these days, not only in the urban areas but also in the rural areas as well. Alarmingly rising population in India and people turning to cities are some of the reason why maintaining health and hygiene and proper sanitary conditions has become difficult.

These are some of the factors that lead to the outbreak of various water borne diseases and one of them is amoebiasis.

That is why, it is said that maintaining cleanliness around oneself and by taking proper food that is completely hygienic, can lead to the prevention of various diseases.
However, if you experience the abdominal pain, stomach cramping or fever, it is important to consult a doctor immediately and must go for amoebiasis diagnosis.

Amoebiasis tests, if done on time, can easily cure this disease and prevent the worsening of health.

Treatment

The doctors prescribe antibiotics if you become infected with Entamoeba histolytica. Generally, just one antibiotic is required if the infection has not made a person sick. This is done so that the person does not begin to show symptoms and prevent the infection in the future.

If the infection aggravates, the doctors prescribe more antibiotics, to treat the situation.
