Afternoon dock. Want to ask, if a 3-year-old child keeps getting worms if the consumption of drugs every month is okay doc? The problem is not recovered. Thank you
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what are the symptoms of intestinal worms that your child is experiencing? Has it been checked by a doctor and diagnosed as a worm? What worm medicines does your child usually consume? Is the medicine prescribed directly by the doctor?
Worms can have various clinical manifestations. If this worm infects the digestive tract (the most common), then the patient may experience nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea, difficulty defecating, difficulty in defecating, heartburn, stomach sounds, bloating, bloody bowel movements, anemia, weakness, malnutrition, often sleepy, growth disorders, and so on. If this worm infects other organs, then the symptoms can be different again.
Handling of intestinal worms itself can vary depending on many factors, including the type of worm, the location of the infection, the severity of clinical symptoms, as well as the general health condition of the patient. Not infrequently, the symptoms of intestinal worms can be very similar to other medical conditions that require different management. Therefore, with these various considerations, and given that most worm medicines are also not included in the free class of drugs, it is not advisable to give children indiscriminate worming, especially for long periods of time.
Safer, you first check your child to the doctor or pediatrician to be given the right treatment according to the cause. Frequently, the diagnosis of intestinal worms can be established starting from interviews, physical examination, or assisted by supporting examinations, such as blood tests, stool tests, ultrasound, and so on.
Hope it helps ..
