Rickettsial Rx: Doxycycline is the drug of choice; it is preferred over other tetracyclines for treatment of rickettsial infections. Chloramphenicol may be used as an alternative but it has potential bone marrow toxicity. Recent data from europe suggest that fluoroquinolones, such as Ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin, may be effective in the treatment of certain rickettsial infections.

Rest & fluids: For most cold & flu viruses, the only real treatment is supporting your body while it fights the infection. Plenty of rest and fluids are the most important component of the treatment. You can also manage symptom with a fever reducer (acetaminophen) and maybe a analgesic spray for your throat. Make sure you wash you hands regularly so you don't spread it!

What is the best treatment for a symptomatic blastocystitis hominis infection?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Clarence Lyons
Family Medicine 20 years experience
Blastocystitis h: The rate of cure with different medications is difficult to say. Some possible treatments include, bactrim, cipro, (ciprofloxacin) flagyl, yodoxin, and alinia. Some of these are used in combination. Flagyl by itself has not been doing so well with curing and if you had flagyl, by itself, and did not get cured, it may not bode well for an easy cure with some other medications. Let your doctor make a recommen.
