Hello Vivin, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.

I can't be sure what kind of worm you found in the water tap. Many types and kinds of worms that can live in water. But if you find worms in water, it should not be used for consumption. There are several diseases that can be caused by worm infections in water such as schistosomiasis.

We recommend that water containing worms is not used for drinking, cooking, and washing eating and cooking utensils. However, if the source of water for drinking is from tap water, it should be cooked and thoroughly until it boils despite using a drinking water filter. This is because the transmission of worm parasitic infections is very easy through direct contamination or through food / drinks consumed.

To avoid being infected with worm parasites, prevention can be done using worm medicines. Before you take worm medicine for prevention / treatment, you should first consult the nearest doctor.

That's all the answers I can give.

Thank you :)
