Child having worm problem, itching near anus area. What should i do? - Online Doctor Chats
Hi XXXXXXX here
welcome to XXXXXXX
I have query regarding my kid age 7 yrs
My kid has worm problem. he do lot of itching near anus area.
how long does he have it?
we had given him ayurvedic deworming medicine six moths back.
ayurvedic medines are not effective to cure them
no. he had lot of white spot on skin which was confirmed as worm infection. now he has no spot but he still do itching started a months back
are you sure it is worms? have you seen it in the stools?
after deworming medicine spot came down to 0 within 3-4 months.
first you will need it do stool test to confirm the condition
is there any specific test to be done.
stool microscopy for ova and cysts
after that once its confirm treatment with deworming medications can be done
most commons are pin worms
I will get the test done. anyway which deworming medicine is most effective for pin worms.
based on the stool test, specific medicine will be prescribed by a doctor
most medicines, are effective against most worms
in addition, once the treatment is done, after 1 month, it is needed to repeat the test, again, to confirm complete deworming
anti helminth medicines are the drugs used to treat such infections
without stool test, can we give any deworming medicine or not?
Such methods are not advisable and is not practiced
Hope u have followed my suggestions
Can I get stool test done without any doctor prescription?
yes, you can take a stool sample and get the test done
can you pls tell me full test name . is it same as "stool microscopy for ova and cysts"
yes, that is right
thanks doc. I take leave now.
