Hi Vrushali thanks for query.There is no need to panic.Worm infestation is not serious.You need to take tablets for this and you will be fine.Please give tablets to other in family also as this can spread from one to another via its eggs.Please talk to your doctor about name of medicine.Most of the drugs for this are chewable so take care not to swallow it to have its effect.
wishing you good health.

Hi Vrushali
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
You have worm in your gut which is apparent now.Do not panic about it.You need anti helminthic antibiotics like Ivermectin.
you should visit your Physician to get a prescription for the same.If you are in a place where Doctor is not available , you can visit a social health worker and ask for deworming schedule.
Hope this helps you.
Take care
