Management Of Dysentery At Home?
, I want to ask my child at the age of 2 years and just after Dr. Igd, after his phases entered the lab, my son was affected by amoeba dysentery. Can it be outpatient? You see, my child vomited green and there was a bloodstain. Is that okay? The heat is still up and down … Still diarrhea .. Continue to eat at all.
Hello Shera, thank you for asking.
Amoebic dysentery is a digestive tract infection caused by an amoeba parasite. Parasites can enter through food and drink, through dirty hands, or through dirty food equipment and toys. Amoeba causes diarrhea which is usually accompanied by bloody and slimy stool. Other symptoms include fever, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
Basically, dysentery that is not severe can improve itself within a period of about 1 week. As with other types of diarrhea, the main treatment is to maintain adequate fluid intake. Give children to drink 1 glass of ORS after diarrhea or vomiting. If the child rejects or nausea, give ORS gradually with a spoon. Also give the child drink agar water, or broth if desired. Foods can be chosen for a soft consistency and not oily or coconut milk.
Pay attention to signs of dehydration such as:
Skin, lips, oral mucosa, dry. Wrinkle skin. Sunken eyes. Little and thick urine. Children continue to get sleepy and have difficulty responding when awakened or spoken to. If there are signs of suspicion of dehydration, then immediately take the child to the doctor.
Hopefully this explanation can help you. Regards.
