Worm medicine is an antiparasitic drug that can eradicate / get rid of parasites in the body. The parasite that is most often found in the body is a worm. There are various kinds of worms that can infect and cause adverse symptoms including pinworms, hookworms, tapeworms, roundworms etc.
Worm medicine should be consumed according to the dose that has been applied. The use of worm medicine that is not according to the indications will certainly cause a bad risk. Also not recommended to consume worm medicine if you do not experience worm infections. Adverse effects from side effects will arise without causing a meaningful benefit. The use of worm medicine in children is recommended to consume once every 6 months as a preventative and treatment measure. Whereas in adults, the use of worm medicine as a precaution is not mandatory, except for those who live in areas that are at high risk of worm infection.
Some of the side effects of antiparasitic medication that can arise include digestive disorders, headaches, allergies, joint pain, hair loss, cramps, decreased appetite, etc.
Things you can do to prevent worm infections include:
Perform a healthy lifestyle
Diligent hand washing before and after consuming food
Maintain personal hygiene and the environment
Do not play or leave the house without using footwear
Cook food until cooked in hot temperatures
Use clean water for bathing and household use
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
