Cryptosporidium is a type of parasite that affects the intestines of humans and animals. The parasite can be found in lakes, streams, rivers and swimming pools. It is thought to develop when animal or human faeces contaminate water and can affect unsanitary areas that are not kept hygienic.

The Cryptosporidium parasite can also spread through the consumption of food if preparation areas, or handlers, come into contact with faeces and are carrying the bacteria.

Cryptosporidium Symptoms

There are multiple symptoms associated with Cryptosporidium, such as:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Nausea & Vomiting
  • Stomach Cramps
  • Fever
  • Weight Loss
  • Dehydration

Diarrhoea is considered to be the main symptom of the illness and, even for those with a healthy immune system, it can take a couple of weeks to recover from. Cryptosporidium symptoms in young children and those with weaker immune systems can last for longer than this.
