Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood your concerns.
Repeated worm infestation has to be dealt differently.
First of all get the stool tests done repeated to know the types of worms that you have as there can be a mixed infestation.
You have to be tried with different medications for worms till you are recovered.Personal hygiene is the most important of all like paring the nails, cleaning hands after use of bathroom and coming from outside of house should be done for all family members.
All family members should also be given the anti-worm treatment.
No outside food, only homemade fresh and well cooked food.
Boiled and cooled water only.
No salads or any raw foods.
Those with low acid production or taking medications to stop or reduce acidity suffer more.
Medicines to be continued till you are cleared of worms.
Once the worms get removed, one gets weight gain due to the fact that now your body has more food that is absorbed and hence the gain.
Control your diet and increase the exercises to control the weight.

My 5 year old child who was born and brought up in UK has now moved to India. He has been there for only 6 months and in that short period of time has had 7 courses of antibiotics for recurrent URTI and gastrointestinal infections. He keeps getting recurrent URTIs. Is there anything we can do to help him cope with the local setting which is obviously lot more polluted than the one in UK? How best can we improve his immunity to local infections? He has had all his primary and booster vaccinations for his age. Please advise. Vidyadhar Ishwar

My daughter is being treated with Flagyl for C-diff and has been hospitalized for 18 days now. If C-diff is caused by too much antibiotics as in her case, a gastrointestinal infection which left an open wound that could not be closed, is this the best medicine for her treatment?
