Hello. Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Nematodes are a class of worms often referred to as gilig worms because they are round and elongated. Some types that infect humans are
Ascaris lumbricoides (stomach worms), the cause of penyakitascariasis
Ancylostoma duodenale (hookworm), many in the mining area
Wuchereria bancrofti (hair worm), the cause of elephantiasis
For complaints that are felt by the stomach area is usually the type of ascaris or referred to as roundworms. The initial stage is the phase when worm larvae move from the intestine to the lungs. This phase occurs 4-16 days after the worm's eggs enter the body. Symptoms that appear at this stage include: fever, coughing, shortness of breath. Next is the worm larvae running into the throat and re-ingested into the intestine, and multiply so that what is disturbed is the function of the digestive system which will also cause symptoms in digestion. This phase lasts 6-8 weeks after the egg enters the body. In general, the symptoms of this stage include abdominal pain, diarrhea, blood in the stool, and nausea and vomiting. Ascariasis worms can live in the body for up to 1-2 years. If not treated, the above cycle will continue. Some eggs will come out through feces and contaminate the soil. While some other eggs will hatch, develop, and move to the lungs. The entire cycle can last around 2-3 months.
The most important thing is to prevent infection in the following ways
Always wash your hands with clean water and soap before eating, before cooking and providing food, after defecation, and after touching the ground.
Wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly before consumption.
Make sure the dishes are thoroughly cooked before consumption.
Try only to drink bottled water that is still sealed when traveling. If not available, boil the water before drinking it.
Thus the information we can convey. May be useful. Thank you
