Note that the treatment depends on the bacteria and the severity of the symptoms. Most cases resolve without treatment, but you might receive antibiotics and fluid replacement therapy through the vein (swero) if your symptoms are more serious.
Parasites like Entamoeba hystolytica can cause amebiasis and lead to mild symptoms like watery stool.
According to the CDC, only 10 to 20% of patients who contract amoebiasis become sick with mild diarrhea and stomach cramps. However, if they develop amoebic dysentery, they might suffer from bloody stool and fever.
Several antibiotics can treat amoebiasis. If you don’t become sick, you may only need one kind of antibiotic. If you developed symptoms, the doctor might give you two types of antibiotics (the first one, then the other).
Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs)
Inflammatory bowel diseases are long-term conditions that cause inflammation in the digestive tract. The two kinds of IBD, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, share similar symptoms, including diarrhea with fever.
The other symptoms are:
- Abdominal pain
- Weight loss
