Are there any alternative treatments for brain-eating amoeba?
I've spent about 6 hours trying to find information about this and haven't had any success.

Naegleria fowleri & other protozoa like Acanthamoeba castellani are sometimes referred to as "brain-eating" amoebas. The latter due to the severity of the disease they can cause and the remarkable inefficiency of the treatments administered at the moment of diagnosis. If you wanna know more about this I would suggest reading this paper https://aac.asm.org/content/aac/59/11/6677.full.pdf
Although if you are a beginner in the field of microbiology you will probably have trouble understanding a paper like that. If this is the case I would suggest reading the introductory chapters of a general medical microbiology book first. The one I started with was Murray's Medical Microbiology from elsevier saunders; I know there is a spanish edition (which is what I read) as well if you happen to prefer that instead of english.
