1 Answer:

Hello, Wirna. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.

What do you mean worm medicine for? Are you referring to over-the-counter worm medicine with an active ingredient in the form of Pirantel Pamoat?

In general, giving worm medicine can be given from children aged 2 years. At the age of 2 years, children have experienced contact with the soil which is a source of worm infection. In addition, Pirantel Pamoat is also not recommended for infants or children younger than 2 years because of the safety of its use in this age group has not been much studied. Do not hesitate to consult with a pediatrician if you find gastrointestinal problems in children younger than 2 years.
