Your child repeatedly suffering from worm infestation. You should avoid child to play with dirt and mud, Hand washing should be strictly followed. Deworming should be done ragularly once in 6 months. If worm load is high repeat deworming after one week also. And Albendazole with ivermectin combination is better choice.And you should watch for vomitings, abdominal distention,severe abdominal pain and constipation. So consult your Pediatrician for medication advise.
