HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, the better to confirm the worm infection and if it is positive then you have to treat the condition according to species of worm, in my opinion just wait for some time prior to take any medicine for this meanwhile better to get done the stool examination and abdomen x-ray, hope this information helps.
I find this answer helpful
