Treatment of parasites: proper treatment for helminthiasis

The presence of parasites in the body causes serious health consequences. These include the development of allergies, general exhaustion and decreased immunity, hypovitaminosis and anemia, as well as disorders of the nervous system, neurosis, insomnia and poor appetite. Proper treatment against parasites, their larvae and eggs, as well as the use of drugs that will restore the metabolic processes disrupted by the presence of uninvited guests in the body, can eliminate all these manifestations.

Getting rid of parasites: general principles

The doctor prescribes a drug for parasites for men

First of all, the treatment aims to completely clean the body of worms and their larvae. If at least one parasite remains in the body, it can cause re-infection. Medicines alone are indispensable here, and this is due to the fact that many parasites pass through dirty hands. In this regard, re-infection is possible even if the patient takes an antiparasitic agent, neglects personal hygiene and is in constant contact with the source of the parasite (humans or animals). .

Therefore, the treatment of parasites consists of two mandatory components:

  • Use of parasitic drugs to remove from the body.
  • Prevention of re-infection (personal hygiene, disinfection of the house, personal belongings and surfaces, treatment of all family members, pets).

In addition, diseases caused by the presence of the parasite in the body often require additional therapy.

Treatment against parasites

Consult a doctor for parasites in the body

The basis of therapy against parasites found in the body is the use of antiparasitic drugs. These drugs can affect both adults and their eggs and larvae. The choice of antiparasitic drug should be made only by a physician after receiving the results of all necessary examinations and assessing the general condition of the patient. Spontaneous use of parasitic drugs for both treatment and prevention of worms is prohibited, and this is due to several factors. First, all drugs against parasites belong to a special group of chemotherapeutic agents, which have a strong toxic effect on living organisms. And the human body is no exception in this regard. Wrong dosage or drug selection can damage the liver or kidneys, while not damaging the helminths.

Second, the doctor calculates the dose based on age and weight, using the antiparasitic drug as soon as possible and in the maximum and safe dose allowed.

Third, according to the results of the analysis, a remedy for parasites is selected, which will be effective in this situation, because different types of worms (including larvae and eggs) die from different types of drugs.

Treatment of parasites: drug classification

to prescribe a drug for parasites

Drugs that affect parasites and their larval forms, eggs, are divided into several classes depending on their effect on certain groups of worms.

The first group is a parasitic drug that affects a class of nematodes. They are divided into two subclasses:

  • Drugs active against intestinal nematodes.
  • Drugs that affect non-intestinal nematode species.

The second group includes drugs that have a detrimental effect on the class of cestodes. They are also divided into two subgroups:

  • Drugs that affect intestinal parasites.
  • Drugs that cause the destruction of cestodes outside the intestinal lumen.

The third group includes all anti-parasitic drugs that act against parasites. They are also divided into subcategories:

  • Drugs that affect intestinal parasites.
  • Drugs that cause the destruction of cestodes outside the intestinal lumen.

A special place is occupied by drugs from the fourth group, which belong to a wide range of action. This means that such a parasitic agent will be effective against most known helminths.

Complementary therapy: treatment of allergies, improvement of well-being

remedies for parasites in the body

In addition to antiparasitic treatment, medications are often used to improve the patient's condition, normalize well-being, and have a general strengthening effect. In addition, treatment of allergies with specific substances is indicated due to the strong allergy of the body to infection with parasites. Allergies occur in response to the influx and proliferation of foreign parasites, which can worsen during mass death of parasites. Therefore, antihistamines are sometimes prescribed to prevent the development of allergies against the background of treatment of helminthiasis.

To eliminate intoxication, remove parasitic wastes and antigens, especially if you have an obvious allergy, while taking anthelmintic drugs, it is indicated to take antihistamines and sorbents at the same time. In addition, sorbing and antiallergic therapy begin about three days before the main drug and last for at least 5 days.

Often helminthiasis leads to disruption of the intestinal microbial flora, and therefore it is recommended to actively use fermented dairy products, plant foods and a course of prophylactic probiotics to restore the normal biocenosis. It is worth eliminating irritants, heavy foods, dense foods and excess protein from the diet during treatment. The most useful will be soups and light vegetable stews, cereals and dairy products. It is important to consume plenty of fluids to actively remove toxins from the body.
