He is not eating well also now a days. He complains of stomach pain on and off. I really donot know what to do. Should i take him to child specialist for this or can i give him some thing at home for this. Is there any thing to be given in the food to remove the worms

There are worms in stools and you need a treatment from the doctor.This is because his hands are not clean. once you get  a treatment from the doctor concenterate on the personal hygiene of your child to prevent the worm infestation again and again

Deworming is the process done by the doctors once in every 3 to 6 months. so please see the pediatrician for it. he gives you a better medicine. Of course there are traditional medicines for the deworming but I do not believe

Hello, My son is 3.6yrs old. I recently noticed white tiny worms in his stool. So after consulting a paediatric doctor,gave him zentel 10ml after dinner. The next day afternoon, when he passed motion,i could still notice a live worm. So does this mean the medicine was ineffective or the infection is severe.should dose be repeated?
