Paola:

You do not say whether you live in a large metropolitan area or in more rural
environments.  However, I think you are going to have to find some one who
specializes in infectious diseases or medical parasitology to make a definitive
diagnosis of your father's parasitoses.  It is often wise to consider parasitic
infections somewhat like birth-defects.  If there is one kind, there are often
many kinds if one only but looks for them.  The reasonably good news is
however, once diagnosed, the appropriate drugs are all pretty effective. 
However, again, I repeat, you need to have a good diagnostic evaluation for
your father in order to decide what drug or drugs and in what order they are to
be taken.  Good luck.

Hi!, i'm from Aregntina and my father has intestinal parasites since
1992, but, here in my country no specialist could give him a solution.
First he was told that he had giardias but then a doctor told him he has
Blastocysts hominis, do you know something about this disease, he keeps
scratching his body all the time and has lot of acne, he is really desesperated,
can you please send me some info, i would appreciate that.
He was also told that he got it from some contaminated water during a trip, but
he has no diarrea no throws up and hasn't lost weight.

Please give me an advice if you can, thanks a lot again.....

Paola.
