Hello Arumsari ...
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com, I try to help answer yes ...
Worms can be experienced by anyone, although this disease can be overcome by administering worm medicine, this condition can occur repeatedly if prevention is not done. Someone who has a worm does not have serious symptoms, but some typical signs that can be seen are:
- Itching around the anus, often occurs at night
- Skin redness around the anus
- Frequent abdominal pain
- Decreased appetite until there is weight loss.
To prevent intestinal worms is to apply a clean and healthy lifestyle and regular consumption of worm medicine. A clean and healthy lifestyle by regularly washing hands with soap, keeping nails clean and cutting nails when it's long so that there are no germs that settle between the nails, always use clean clothes, use footwear and wash clothes using hot water so that the eggs worms that might stick to clothes or sheets and towels can be killed. Prevent children from scratching the anus using their hands and keep the food they eat clean.
According to the anthropometry table according to WHO standards, the threshold category of nutritional status when viewed from body weight according to age, at the age of your child 17 months with a weight of 9.2 kg into the category of good nutrition. Keep your child's nutritional needs sufficient by consuming nutritious foods and implementing clean and healthy lifestyles.
In situations where the corona virus is spreading rapidly, if not accompanied by needs and urgency you should stay at home, or take care of yourself so that you are not exposed to the virus, if there are complaints such as sore throat that gets worse for more than 2 weeks, accompanied by fever more than 38 degrees Celsius, coughs, colds that do not heal until there is a feeling of tightness or difficulty breathing, even though you have tried to take medication, then you should check yourself to the doctor, for further examination.
Thus my answer, hopefully it helps
