Hi, I got amebiasis after travelling in Central America a few years ago and encountering the parasite Entamoeba histolytica. It was initially treated using metronidazole which worked but the parasite returned within twelve months. Tried metro. again but didn't work so had to be referred to an infectious disease specialist to be prescribed paromomycin. This was about twelve months ago and the parasite has now returned again. Unfortunately the GP and specialist I have been treated by don't fill me with much confidence and didn't really seem to know much about the parasite and associated disease. Has anyone heard of this parasite returning multiple times?
