Hi doctor,

My son has got worms in his stomach. He is feeling itchy in his back anal part.I found 2 small warms. Apart from this he is normal playing and eating.

Thanks for writing to healthcare magic.

You can give albendazole syrup. And repeat this course after 2 weeks. For the prescription and proper dosage, your child needs to be examined by a pediatrician.
Make sure you wash your kids hands frequently especially before feeds and every time he scratches the anal area.
