Brief Answer:
Antiparasitic drugs like Albendazole will be helpful.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir,

I understand your concern.

Nothing to worry.

I generally advise my patients with this complaint to take Tab.Albendazole one tablet today followed by second dose after 72 hours.This will cause deworming in the body.

So please check with your doctor whether he prescribes the same.

Meanwhile drink plenty of water.

Post your further queries if any,

Thank you.

I ve had swollen hands the past two days and have been excessively tired for 2weeks - I have to sleep every 5 or 6 hours. One day I came home and my eyes were blurry and I couldn t focus, I was dizzy and had nasea. It went away in an hour. I have a dry cough now for a few days and my body aches. I have a baby kitten and it scratches me/bites alot. I had creeping eruption on my foot a week ago, and they gave me an anti parasitic drug that I took a day before my vision was blurry. I don t know if any of this matters but I m wondering if the swollen and aching body is more than a cold and needs to be checked out. Thanks!

I have had moderate to severe tinnitus for 4 months and live in Medellin South America. I have had an audio exam and lost some high frequencies from music when I was young and had an ear infection from a severe flu which triggered it here 4 months ago. I have had thorough exams and have good blood pressure and no obvious blockage or damage to the ear. I have tried anti virals and use Serc (Beta histadine) and vitamins like ginkgo bioba/vinpiocetine and B vitmains. Not much success with those.I tried albendazole/secnidazol as a one day parasite cleanse and the condition got much better. Visual exams of my stool was negative. Should I continue with this anti parasite treatment?
