Treatment For Liver Abscess?
Good afternoon Doctor, ….
Thank you for the question.
Liver abscess is defined as a pus-filled sac that forms in the liver parenchyma due to infection. Based on the cause, there are 3 types of liver abscesses, namely pyogenic abscess (caused by bacteria, especially E.coli and Klebsiella pneumonia), amebic abscess (caused by parasites, especially Entamoeba histolytica), and fungal abscess (caused by fungi, especially Candida sp. ). This liver abscess is formed usually due to the spread of infection from the appendix (appendicitis), ducts or gallbladder (cholangitis, cholecystitis), blood (sepsis), heart (endocarditis), kidney (pyelonephritis), and various other organs. Liver abscess is actually a very rare disease. However, if your wife has a weak immune system, or has other infections that are not handled properly, then the risk of the infection spreading to the liver and forming an abscess will be far greater.
Liver abscesses can be very deadly if not treated properly. Medically, this liver abscess can be treated with several procedures, such as administering drugs to eradicate the cause of the infection (such as antibiotics, antifungal, or anti-parasitic) as well as overcome the complaints that arise, to surgery. The good, bring your wife to check her condition directly to the doctor or specialist in internal medicine so that it can be given the best treatment, yes. At home, so that healing works more optimally, let your wife get plenty of rest, give her plenty to drink and high-calorie high-protein food variations in small portions but often, keep your wife away from cigarettes and alcohol, also do not carelessly give your wife any medicine or herbs to deal with the disease without direct advice from the doctor.
Hope this helps ...
