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
