hi ,my paediatrician has told me that children who grew up in the urban areas do not need de-worming. Only children who run around barefoot on soil infested with animal droppings and those areas with no proper sewage system.
welcome to h & m,
de-worming is compulsory to every child.because they play in the in soil, sand eat contaminated food ,contaminated water etc.
due to this worms grow in the stomach,they cause indigestion,anemia,loss of appetite, bed wetting.
so de-worming is compulsory.
in homeopathy also best medicines available for de-worming.
usually child plays in parks. some times they eat fruits of salad without washing. sometime washing can`t removes larvas or eggs from fruits or vegetable so unknowing we eat eggs or larva of parasite. so deworming is almost compulsory specially for children every 6 monthly.
it is not sured that u got infection from such eating behaviour. it is beneficial to do deworming.
it is cost effective & has no side effect.
not compulsary. but u may do it every six mths or one year, considering that it is difficult to diagnose worm infestation till it becomes very obvious or complications appear, and medicine given for deworming is a safe drug, so it better to choose a smaller and calculative risk of side-effects of deworming rather than face its uncalculative and untimely complications.
I dont say it is compulsary to deworm each and every child. but ofcourse it is beneficial to deworm children particularly who play outside. deworming should be atleast for every year. Best drug would be albendazole. dosage would be according to age of child.
welcome to h & m,
Deworming is a good and harmless process and the country like India due to poor sanitation worms ova are present everywhere .Children even adult should take antihelminthic as a good precuation.
it will be good if you give the de worming agent to your kids like albendazole and ivermectin,they will promote good appetite and general good health and avoid any complications due to worms in future like intestinal obstruction.
hello dear, there is no need for deworming child every year. children play in mud and with animals thats not indication for deworming medication. if your child having any symptoms of chronic abdominal pain, passing bloody stools, and passing worms in stools then there is need to use deworming medication. otherwise not necessary. thank you for your query .
