You have given proper medicine for worm infestation and anal itching is common in worm infestation.
First dose you gave was right but after a week you might have given full 10 ml dose instead of 5 ml.
Nothing to worry, after 15 days you give full dose of 10 ml.
Anal itching will remain for few days more till all worms pass away or killed.
Keep nails of your son clean and well cut in time.
ok and take care.

For about 2 weeks now my anus has been itchy, usually right before and right after a bowel movement, which haven t been very regular those 2 weeks either- mostly thin and feeling like I m not able to get it all out. There was blood on my toilet paper for a few days, not just after bowel movements, but I don t seem to have any hemrroids, and I haven t had any trauma to the area. What could be causing the itching?
