How long does a tablet for the treatment of threadworms take to work?
Hi I found out a few days ago my daughters have threadworms. We all took a over tablet on Thursday night and I’ve just checked one daughter who still has some coming out while she is asleep. Should this have worked by now ? It’s been 3 and half days
Normally the treatment for threadworms should be repeated in 20 days. After all the family members take one pill, the same dose is repeated in 20 days by all the family members. The reason for this is because the infection may still go on after the first dose. It is important though that all be treated at the same time and that all the people that visit often or are in close contact with the family members are treated as well.
I hope this answers your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
