worm.infestation

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic for your query.
Have gone through your details,
Rectal.itching is due to worm infestation most likely pin worm infection.
A short term course of Albendazole 400 mg should be taken for 3 days.
A stool routine and microscopy test should be done to see the cyst and ova in stools.

Chew 400 mg of albendazole every day before going to bed.
Thanks!
