Hi

that is not necessarily a parasite.

You need stool testing...that is what you do.

To treat a parasite correctly you have to first identify it.

The doctor will order three samples to be collected at different times

and give you three kits.

You collect the stool and give it back to the doctor or send it to the lab.

There are different medications for different parasites.

Once it is identified, if it is there, the correct medication can be given.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
