Hello Ratna, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Hookworm infection of the skin can actually improve by itself (but in a long time) but the complaints will get better and disappear faster when using special worm infection medicines.


Based on the recommendations available to date, this disease can indeed be treated by using the drug albendazole for 3 days or according to doctor's instructions regarding the duration of treatment. In the first days of treatment it will not all die immediately, but has undergone many changes.


If your child's treatment has not reached the specified time, then it does not matter even if it seems to spread, continue to treat it. However, when it reaches the prescribed time for treatment but the complaint is still there or is getting worse, go back to the doctor who examined your child to re-evaluate your child's condition.


For this disease itself, the best advice is to prevent this by always using leg footing, especially in areas where there is a high risk of hookworms (such as beaches). Always clean yourself after outside activities. Avoid bringing pets to public places to prevent disease transmission from public facilities.


I hope this helps.
