Had itch anal region, sleepless nights, used zentel, subsided feel uncomfortable mornings. Continue zentel?

Hi Doctor ,
I developed an itch near my anal region a month ago & it increased a lot over the next 2 weeks .. the itching was intense in the nights & I've spend quite a few sleepless nights because of it . I consulted a gynecologist about it & she prescribed tab Zentel 400 mg 1 a week for 2 weeks . Although the itch has reduced dramatically , it is still uncomfortable in the early mornings & itches . I've even tried everything from Dettol wash & warm salt water wash . If it was worms shouldn't it have gone by now ? Should I have one more Zentel Tab ?

Thank you & have a good day .

Thanks for the query.
Usually one tablet is sufficient to get relief from the worms.
If you are still having the symptoms you have to check the personal habits like cutting the nails regularly, avoiding scratching, regularly changing the inner wear, bed cloths etc.
Your family members should also get deworming.
You can use local anti-inflammatory cream that can give some relief. Don't use so much of local disinfectant lotions.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
