Amoebasis and Diarrhea
« on: September 21, 2012, 10:27:27 am »

Hi Mommies,

I am a first time mom of an 8-month old baby.. This past 4 days, she's suffering diarrhea and upon pedia's check up and laboratory test, it found out that she has amoebasis... Mga mommies, help tips nma oh on how to prevent future infection and ano ginawa nyo? Got so worried talaga. Thanks!

sanitze lang talaga ng bottles and if using previously boiled water for milk, at least 5mins syang kumukulo sis. wash hands before preparing/handling baby's food.

Wag rin basta-basta magpakain ng kung ano-ano kay baby, lalo na if you're eating out, kasi hindi natin alam kung paano niluto yung pagkain sa labas. Tayo siguro hindi basta-basta matitira ng sakit kasi kahit papano immune na tayo sa mga bacteria. Pero ang mga baby such age, delikado pa.
Pag sa bahay naman, make sure na taong pinagkakatiwalaan mo, o ikaw mismo ang mag luto at maghanda ng pagkain ni baby.

Sabi ng pedia ni McCoy dati, pwede raw makahawa ang amoebiasis ni baby kung nailagay mo yung kamay mo na hindi masyadong nahugasan after linisan ang poo-poo ni baby.

Your baby can get amoebiasis from improper handling of bottles during milk preparation as well as during sterilization. Suggested by pedia is to boil or sterilize your bottles within 30 minutes medium heat to avoid drying up. Plus when bathing the baby, you should use mineral/distilled/sterile water, from neck and up. Esp when washing baby's face, because amoeba in free or tap water may ingested by babiea during bath time.

hi sis have u read below comments?
siguro sis siguro mo nalang na malinis ang hands mo.. yung nails dapat pudpod siya.... then proper na pagstrilize sa mga bottles & bowl na ginagamit mo or pinaglalagyan ng mga bottles niya.. use mineral water even sa paghuhugas ng bottles,sa pagpapaligo,and Wilkins po dapat water niya..and tell other na nasa loob ng bahay nio na maghugas lagi ng kamay and magalcohol pati mga nails nila pudpudin nila.. before sila humawak kay baby?

 pero sis sabi mo u did naman yung lahat pra maiwasan un diba? same hospital kaba ngpapa laboratory? try mo kaya sa iba sis?just to make sure na tama ang results?napaisip lang ako.. :)

walang nakitang parasite sa stool exam niya pero consider ng pedia niya na amoebiasis un.. pag masipon sipon daw ang poop amoeba daw un..dko na siya ask Y hindi lumabas sa laboratory.. then he gave us Metronidazole & erceflora so far naging okay na c baby one dose palang ng metronidazole then every poop niya pinapainom ko erceflora.. I dunno where nianakuha un.. baka sa yaya niya,di kasi mahilig maghugas kamay un, lagi nalilimutan.

hi mga sis.

my son had this also last week lang. Actually, napa-lab test na namin sya kasi nga nag-diarrhea sya.
nung unang exam, wala silang makita na parasite. pero metronidazole din yung binigay samin ng pedia
and erceflora for diarrhea nga.
than after, di na kami mapakali after 3 days dahil may fever na rin sya. kaya pina-lab namin ulit yung stool niya
just to make sure na kung ano ba talagang meron inside.
then may amoeba nga sya.
----Amoeba (sometimes amba or ameba, plural amoebae or amoebas) is a genus of Protozoa[1] consisting of shapeless unicellular organisms.

possible daw umulit ito sis. dahil bacteria nga and sa tap water sila most common nag stay.
hint din namin ni hubby na sa paliligo niya yun nakukuha. ingat ingat na lang din. wala syang symptoms.
diarrhea lang talaaga minsan may fever pang kasama.
metronidazole + ercefuryl yung iniinom ng son ko.
