Hello,

Your symptoms seem to be related to a parasites gastrointestinal infection. Treatment consists of antiparasitic drugs. Albendazole and mebendazole have been used commonly in daily practice. These medications are over the counter options.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
