Symptoms of this dysentry include severe blood-streaked diarrhoea, stomach pains, sickness and fever. Hygiene is extremely important as the condition is infectious.

Amoebic dysentery is prevalent in tropical countries and is a serious condition, requiring immediate medical attention. Chinese Medicine regards dysentery as an external disease, considered to be due to heat and damp poisons in the intestines, which causes a blockage. The medicine used for it includes treatment with anemone, which is very effective, plus white peony rootskullcap root and golden thread.
