Just diagnosed with a serious ameoba infection. The doctor and lab told me in San Carlos and Guaymas there is an epidemic of parasite infections, from bad water. He asked I communicate that if you have diarrea (sp?) for more than 24 hours see a doctor and get treatment. Giardia, salmonella, and the deadly entamoaeba histolytica are showing up in alarming numbers. All are water related.  After Hurricane Jimena when the water supply was compromised, I caught all three at the same time!  Survived, and will survive this bout too.  Untreated, ameoba and salmonella can kill you. Giardia just makes you wish you were dead (LOL)

Do you know if you got it from drinking the water or just things like brushing your teeth? Thanks.

Thank you Leslie, and get well soon! Antibiotics are no fun, but they work.

Yes Mr. Rogers, you can get it from any ingested tap water according to Mexican authorities. There was a meeting at the Armida Hotel this past week for Guaymas and San Carlos hoteliers where this was discussed. They were told to monitor their tinaco water used in kitchens and hotel rooms AND swimming pool water for proper chlorine level.

If you have pool or hot tub, yes. If you must drink tap water, boil it first.

I find it hard to believe that anyone would be drinking the tap water here. But, I remember reading several post, some time back, about so called "intelligent" folks who swore by it.
Well, drinking this tap water is akin to playing Russian Roulette with your Health.

I do not drink the tap water. Only bottled for this babe! I do use it to brush my teeth. Don't think I'll be doing that anymore.

Nothing of this issue is posted on the "other" site, I think that someone should inform and warn those on that site that do not participate here.

The amoeba can also be ingested via salads whose ingredients were washed with tap water and not disinfected. Also the "pico de gallo" salsa can be suspect and don't forget any raw seafood. Crab can also be a source because many "clean" their crab in buckets of tap water.

Would you mind telling us what your symptoms were that led you to discover you were infected with amoeba.

I don't post Viva anymore. It would be great if someone could copy the info and post as a community service. George sees my posts as "advertising" and edits or removes. . . go figure.

one case does not make an epidemic!
the advise from our good friend leslie is prudent to observe!
 but going into a panic is a little absurd!

Also, giardia would not be in well water. The water after Hurricane Jimena was trucked in and the source(s) unknown. Has anyone seen anything in the local newspapers?

Don't want folks to panic, just a heads up. If you have the drizzly squirts for more than a day or so, don't ignore it. It can get much worse.
