How to Treat Cryptosporidiosis Diarrhoea?


Things to note:
  • Rehydration with oral rehydration solution (ORS).

Medical Treatment:
Cryptosporidiosis does not have a specific antimicrobial therapy. It responds well to ART, as with other opportunistic illnesses.
Antimotility agents are partially effective, e.g:
  • Loperamide, oral, initially 4 mg, followed by 2 mg up to 4 times daily as required.
