Probably not: The presence of reducing substances and pus cells in small concentrations doesn't necessarily indicate infection, but it seems your doctor prescribed Taxin O just in case.

In a healthy person without symptoms, these findings are meaningless. See your doctor if you have symptoms like unexplained diarrhea, abdominal pain, etc. Otherwise no worries. ...Read more

My 2y old had amoeba 2 months ago.Stool analysis was done to check if it is gone& 3-5 pus cells, undigested food were found.Does he still have amoeba?
Amoebic dysentery: Did they check for amoeba/parasites on this stool sample? I assume they did. If there was no evidence of amoebiasis, then it's probably gone. The inflammation in the gut can take a longer time to go away however. If your child is still having diarrhea, i recommend you talk with your doctor about how to help the intestines recover from the recent infection. ...Read more
