Parasitic Infections

Parasitic infections :are illnesses caused by parasites, organisms that live on or inside another organism (the host) and rely on it for nourishment and survival. These parasites can be protozoa, helminths (worms), or ectoparasites like ticks and lice. Parasitic infections can occur through various routes such as consumption of contaminated food or water, insect bites, or contact with contaminated soil. Some common parasitic infections include:Malaria: Caused by the Plasmodium parasite and transmitted through the bite of infected female Anopheles mosquitoes. Malaria can cause fever, chills, and flu-like symptoms and can be life-threatening if not treated promptly.Toxoplasmosis: Caused by the Toxoplasma gondii parasite, often found in cat feces. It can be transmitted through contaminated food or water and may cause flu-like symptoms or serious complications, particularly in pregnant women and individuals with weakened immune systems.

Tapeworm infections: Caused by various species of tapeworms, often transmitted through undercooked or contaminated meat. Symptoms can vary depending on the species but may include abdominal pain, weight loss, and nutritional deficiencies.Treatment for parasitic infections typically involves medication specific to the type of parasite involved. Prevention often includes good hygiene practices, proper food handling, avoiding contact with contaminated water sources, and using insect repellent to prevent insect bites
