Is zentel safe for a 15 month old baby?

My daughter has been having hard smelling poo and she breaks out with rash from time to time. She was kinda quite and cranky in school today according to her teacher. I was advised to give her worm medicine. I asked the pharmacist and she gave me Zentel. Can my 15 month old baby take it and I want to know if it's safe.

Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

A single, 10ml dose of Zentel suspension is safe in children above 1 year of age.

However, it would be advisable to consult a Pediatrician to explore the possibility of a food allergy, particularly gluten allergy, in view of recurrent rashes and soul-smelling stools.
