Do Worms Need To Be Consumed Regularly If They Have Worms?
Hello,. I want to ask, I used to experience worms about a year ago. Initially, when I pooped, there was a kind of white and long worm in the toilet. then I was confused, but ignored. 2 days later, I felt no appetite and every chapter defecated (liquid) and when I wanted to exercise Jogging, just a few meters had been tired, the term is easy Tired. Quickly, I took Combatrin (Worm Medicine) and the symptoms had disappeared. What kind of worm is this? and if you have been infected with intestinal worms, do you need to take Combatrin every 6 months? and I also still don’t know what causes my intestinal worms. What causes worms?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Gastrointestinal worms are a type of parasite in the digestive tract. Some kinds of gastrointestinal worms include:
1. Flatworms, for example tapeworms.
2. Roundworms, for example ascariasis, pinworms, hookworms.
Worm infections in the gastrointestinal tract can be caused by factors:
1. Consumption of contaminated water.
2. Consumption of contaminated soil.
3. Contact with contaminated feces.
4. Poor sanitation.
5. Poor quality of cleanliness.
Symptoms of worm infection in the gastrointestinal tract such as dysentery, abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, bloating, weakness, weight loss whose origin is unclear, or itching around the anus. In some cases worms can also be found in feces during bowel movements.
Treatment will depend on the type of worm that infects and also the symptoms experienced. For example, flatworm infections can be treated with praziquantel. While roundworm infections are generally treated with mebendazole or albendazole.
If you have ever done treatment, you should consult with a doctor. Stool examination may be needed to obtain information on whether worm infections still occur.
That's all, hope you can help
