Cyclospora Infection (Cyclosporiasis) Topic Guide
Cyclospora: Cyclospora is a parasite that can cause symptoms such as diarrhea, nausea, and cramping when ingested. The only CDC recommended treatment is the antibiotic trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.
Most cases of diarrhea can be treated at home. In some cases (in the elderly, small children, or those with severe or chronic medical conditions) may need to be hospitalized due to dehydration.
