How is chagas transmitted and butt
How can I keep from getting it?
Is there a vaccine?
The medication focuses on killing the parasite and managing signs and symptoms but does not always help.You usually can only get benznidazole and nifurtimox in places where chagas once was common.
Where is it found?
There has only been one case in the USA and that was in Texas a very long time ago.
Trypanosomiasis cruzi and Triatomine bugs can only survive in very warm climates-- this explains why there has only been cases in very hot places! Because they can only survive in warm climates, we luckily have never had a case of Chagas in Iowa or anywhere around it.
