Treatment Of Children Affected By Worms In The Skin Of The Feet?
Tonight, my child is 11 months old, and is now exposed to worms in the skin of his feet. Has been sprayed twice, but there are still spots around the skin that has been sprayed. How is the follow up?

Parasitic infections such as worms can infect human skin. Often hookworms can enter the surface of the skin and cause a sensation of itching followed by redness and contortion of the worm's body on the surface of the body that can be seen.
This disease is called migraine cutaneus / creeping eruption / skin worm infection. To treat this disease, some antiparasitic drugs that can be given include tiabendazole, albendazole and other antiparasitic groups.
Then, the freckles on the skin of the feet are not entirely worm infections, because they may be bacterial infections or insect bites. Therefore, I suggest to do a direct examination to the dermatologist or general practitioner closest to you to assess the picture of the infection that occurs and ascertain the underlying cause.
To prevent children from skin worm infections, the things that must be done include:
Always wear shoes when playing outside
Wash hands and feet after playing and before eating
Do not litter animals
Try to avoid dirty play areas
Always watch your child when playing
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
