Parasites in the human body

Knowledge of symptoms which indicate infection of the human body of parasites, allows to start treatment in a timely manner, until General poisoning and the horrible consequences such as irreversible obstruction of the digestive system, breathing, blood formation.

Parasites in the human body

Every year from parasitic infestations in the world unbeknownst to statistics quietly dies over 1 ml. people. Today, human health depends only on his personal activity. If there are signs of intoxication of unknown etiology, insist on modern methods of diagnosis of parasites and immediate treatment.

How to identify parasites in the human body, if the stool test is not considered mandatory study even before hospitalization to the Department of Allergology! Only characteristic symptom that indicates infection, other organ of the body and of intoxication: sudden vomiting, diarrhea, allergic manifestations, urticaria, rhinitis, and sudden cutting pain in the digestive tract and the head.

Urgent medical attention, as delay of treatment is dangerous severe complications: meningitis, sepsis, peritonitis, intestines, nervous system.

Some parasites can live in man

People far from medicine, I think the parasites that live in the human body, solely different kinds of worms. Meanwhile, there are more than 300 species of parasitic micro and macro organisms, stealing from human cells nutrients that destroy the integrity of the walls of blood and lymphatic vessels and organs, toxic blood.

Ways of infection

Ways of infection

How does the transfer:

  • Alimentary way (via GIT) you can get parasites from contaminated water, food while ignoring the businesses sanitary-and-hygienic rules of their processing. And if you do not wash vegetables, drink water while bathing in the river. To eat half-baked kebab, sushi from freshwater fish (as it enters the body the many intestinal protozoa and helminthes).
  • Household by contact can become infected if not enough to wash their hands often. Through money, rail agencies, rail transport, toys, household items. Or through handshakes, kissing with an infected person. After contact with sick animals (the way for the introduction of almost all parasites).
  • In a special way through the blood of pathogenic larval parasites enter the body after being bitten by flies, mosquitoes, mites, birds, animals.
  • By percutaneous infection occurs when the introduction of larval parasites in the tissue of the mucous membranes and through the skin.
  • Another type of infection occurs by inhalation of the eggs parasites (e.g., Echinococcus).
  • Transplacental way – utero transfer of baby parasites (Toxoplasma gondii).
  • Through sexual contact is transmitted Trichomonas.
  • In case of violation of transmission of blood – in operations at the hospital in a poorly treated instruments.

Symptoms of parasites in humans

Distinguish the General and specific signs of infection, the localization of pathogenic micro and macro organisms.

The parasites are intracellular (which affect cells). For example, Toxoplasma gondii, Plasmodium.

Abdominal: living in the cavities of the intestines, lungs, urogenital system and other organs. Cani, pinworms, ascarids, lantecy, whipworm.

Tissue: living in the lymph and blood. In striated muscles. In the tissues of the brain (Toxoplasma larvae of tapeworms) and nerve fibers.

All this classification is rather arbitrary, since many parasites are constantly moving, migrate to various organs and tissues.

Common symptoms of infestation are:

  • diarrheal disorders: diarrhea, vomiting, flatulence, constipation, pain in the digestive tract;
  • allergic reactions: rhinitis, rash;
  • pain in the muscles, in the joints;
  • the appearance of papillomas, warts, fibrous tumors;
  • weight loss or weight gain;
  • nervous disorders: agitation (or drowsiness), irritability (apathy), insomnia;
  • bruxism (during sleep loud involuntary movements clenched teeth).
  • reduced immunity manifested by frequent colds.
In the intestine

Parasites are also pathogenic viruses, bacteria, fungi which cause infectious diseases. When infected observed General symptoms: high fever, sore throat, head, stomach, runny nose, cough, sneezing and other.

How to determine the presence of parasites

With the defeat of a particular organ and tissues is dominated by distinctive signs.

In the intestine

The most favorable place for the life of parasites: high humidity, warm temperatures, PH – neutral.

Parasites disguised as thousands of diseases, so to determine it visually, without laboratory tests is impossible. The period of treatment depends on diagnostic accuracy and identification of parasites at a very early stage of infection.


It is impossible to take medicines without a doctor's permission. All drugs used for the destruction of protozoan parasites and helminths toxic not only for them but also for the human liver.

Antiprotozoal drugs

They are used for the treatment of diseases caused by protozoa: malaria, toxoplasmosis and others. As well as giardiasis, leishmaniasis, and other diseases. The doctor always assigns individual safe treatment regimen. The initiative to harm.

Dosage and methods of use determined by the physician.

Treatment of helminths

When selecting products preference for the cause of drugs with a broad spectrum of activity:

  1. Mebendazole deprives the worms ability to absorb nutrients, destroys their cells. Kills roundworm, pinworm, tapeworm larvae, and other parasites.
  2. Medicines against worms are used for the treatment of teniasis, enterobiasis, hookworm, ascariasis.
  3. Dekaris eliminates nematodes, pinworm, whipworm, ascarids, Toxoplasma gondii.
  4. Paralyzing worms drug works against a wide lentetsa, bovine tapeworm and dwarfism, other tapeworms.
  5. Pyrantel take to kill roundworm, hookworm, pinworm, whipworm.
  6. Praziquantel eliminates flukes, tapeworms and other intestinal parasites.
  7. Of dietary Supplements well help in the treatment of parasites Triad Evalar, helmetag.

Doctors choose drugs according to the two criteria of safety for people: drugs that deprive the parasites of the ability of nutrition and metabolism less harmful to the liver. Medications paralyze the worms, they are more toxic and are per person. Self-medication pharmaceuticals before a fall.
