Overview

Prevention

To help prevent the spread of amoebiasis around the home:

  • Wash hands thoroughly with soap and hot running water for at least 10 seconds after using the toilet or changing a baby's diaper, and before handling food
  • Clean bathrooms and toilets often. Pay particular attention to toilet seats and taps.
  • Avoid sharing towels or face washers.
  • Avoid raw vegetables when in endemic areas as they may have been fertilized using human feces.
  • Boil water or treat with iodine tablets.
