Dysentery is caused by the inflammation of the intestine (especially the colon) which leads to severe diarrhoea. While the disease itself is not life threatening, the excess loss of fluids could possibly become fatal. Thus the intestinal inflammation can be mild to severe, however through proper treatment and medications it can be resolved.

What is Dysentery?

Dysentery is defined as inflammation of the intestine which leads to severe diarrhoea. Generally, most of the people experience two types of dysentery, either bacterial dysentery or amebic dysentery. Bacterial dysentery is the most common type of dysentery caused by bacterial infection. On the contrary, amebic dysentery is a type of intestinal inflammation caused by a single-celled parasite.

The disease may not life-threatening, but excess loss of fluids can become fatal. Due to the intestinal infection, the patients feel stomach ache along with cramps and then it becomes irresistible for them to visit the toilet. The infection can be triggered by contaminated food, contaminated water and other drinks, not maintaining proper hygiene, swimming in contaminate water, physical contact with the infectious people.
