Do not be terrified. If you have excreted worms, there is nothing to get terrified. Just take an OTC anti-worming medicine for three days and you'll get treated.

Please bare in mind that your whole family members must take the dose of anti-worming drug also for preventive measures.

Keep on with good hygiene measures :
- wash hands with water and soap each time you cook or eat and after passing bowel movements
- boil/filter tap water or drink mineral water

If still having problems, must consult your physician.
Hope it helped!
