Do Worms That Cause Intestinal Worms Can Come Out Through Vomit?
Good morning, I want to ask .. this morning my mother vomited. And in my mother’s vomit there was like a brown pinworm, and only one was issued. This morning my mother had her own fried white noodle breakfast, and drank about half a glass of milk. Is it true that pinworms, and worms that spit out are still alive. Thanks. Good morning..
Hi Ronico .. Thank you for the question.
Worm infections can be experienced by anyone and at any age. Especially if you are in an environment with a lack of cleanliness or from consuming undercooked food. Worm infections can be tapeworms, hookworms, pinworms, roundworms. Worms that come out of the mouth or through vomit can be caused by roundworm infections or ascariasis. Ascaris can enter the human body through ingested worm eggs, these worm eggs will then hatch into larvae in the intestine. Then through the bloodstream, these larvae will go to the lungs and develop there about 1 week. Next to the throat. When in this throat, the patient can cough and remove the larvae or the larvae will be swallowed back and develop in the intestine. Furthermore, in the intestines worms will multiply and can survive in the human body 1-2 years.
Symptoms that patients often complain about are: fever, dry cough, shortness of breath, diarrhea, blood in the stool, nausea, and vomiting. Also can occur weight loss, worms can come out through vomit or when defecating.
If in your mother's vomit found worms then it is better to check your mother to a doctor in internal medicine. So the doctor can do a physical examination directly and can be followed by stool checks, blood checks, chest X-ray images, abdominal ultrasound. It's also a good idea to do this:
Keep the environment clean
Cook foods both vegetables and meat until cooked properly before consuming them
Consumption of boiled water
