How to Treat Dysentery?

Medical Treatment:
  • Usually it does not need treatment, because it clears up after three to seven days on its own
  • Take plenty of fluids and use oral rehydration solutions (ORS) to avoid dehydration
  • Over-the-counter painkillers, such as paracetamol, can help relieve pain and fever
  • Avoid antidiarrhoeal medications, like loperamide, as they can make things worse
  • You should not come outside until at least 48 hours after the last episode of diarrhea to reduce the risk of spreading the infection to others
