Re: What happens to dead parasites?

They get eaten by macrophages. On top of that the body will break it down using enzymes, acid, etc. It can only do that once the parasite is dead otherwise the parasite avoid it using different survival techniques. Having said that in a very bad infection like in Africa where they get massively re-infected with already bad infection the body will struggle to cope to remove/breakdown such numbers so surgery must be used. So it dep on how bad it is.
