Conditions with symptom: 'worms'
Hi, my child develops thread worms quite a lot probably due to sucking her thumb, I do give her medications to kill the thread worms. I have noticed that her belly resembles much of what a bloated belly looks like. I am worried that it could develop into something serious as the thread worms keep coming back.( I have tried to get her to stop sucking her thumb, however she just won't stop! ). Please help.
Just to help go and I will be a bit scaryer but I had them too I got them away by telling them and they got the medcien and I had no worms just try we are only human and no one can chang that

I am 21 years old, and I keep getting these worms every month or so. I've tried Vermox, Vanquin, and even Zentel, but nothing seems to work. They always come back. It doesn't itch alot, but I can feel something moving down there at night, and it's absolutely horrible! I can't sleep, and had to quit school because I couldn't get up in the morning. The problem is that I have never seen a worm, but I have all the symptoms. My doctor have given up on me, and she thinks I'm just imagining it. How can doctors say that the worm isn't harmful? I have never been as depressed in my whole life. The worst part isn't the worms themselves, but the lack of sleep. Does anyone have any solutions? I'm desperate..
It could be internal piles (hemorrhoids) causing the itching if that's not yet been considered. Other than that, keep your fingernails as short as possible & DO NOT bite them ever, try not to put fingers into your nose either as both of these actions can introduce worm eggs back into the digestive cycle. If no medication is working, try cutting out all sugar & sugary carbohydrates (cakes, biscuits, sweetened crisps etc) from your diet for a couple of weeks as worms love feeding on them. Some people go as far as having colonic irrigation procedures, but I'm unsure of the results. Hope that helps.
Hello, I'm a 17 year old female. Living in England at the moment. When I was about 12-13, I realised these small white worms in my poo and on the tissue I wiped it off with. Gross I know. But I just thought it was nothing maybe something I had eaten. My mum never took us to doctors when we were younger, she isn't well so I took care of the family. She just takes it for granted that me and my siblings are perfectly "healthy", and now when I book my own doctors appointments if needed, the bloody doctors are useless I swear! I haven't gone about the worms yet, will next week. They don't actually help me. And I think there's so many things wrong with my body, if I tell them they don't actually to anything to prevent it. Now at 17, 18 in January, I actually realise I have worms. Got every symptom going. So I think I've had it for years! Even younger than 12-13. I have a really bad loss of appetite sometimes, and if I'm actually willing to eat and make myself full, I'm hungry the next hour. I'm very skinny, I have tried putting on weight for years! But now I know why! I eat a lot aswell! Nothing helps! No matter how much I eat. The main question is after having them a long time of period will this affect my health? For the future or now? Im a very sporty person and I don't even tend to put on much muscle. Would I be able to gain weight if they were gone? And what would you strongly recommend to get rid of them? A few things listed would be great thanks. Think I have them in my ears aswell. So anything that could get rid of them from my whole body. I'm fed up of being this skinny I just want I gain weight. I go up and down in weight all the time, last time I weighed myself I was under 7stone before that, I was over 7stone.
You can buy Mebendazole online or at boots. Albendazole cures other types of parasites & you need a prescription in the UK - but if you go on holiday pop in at a pharmacy to see if they sell without prescription. I heard a nutritionist once saying that parasites are normal and that everyone, specially if you eat dead animals, needs to do a treatment every 6 months wether you suspect you have or not because a lot of the time you don't feel any symptoms. Read about the meds, ask a pharmacist or doctor - and I agree - docs in the UK are extremely bad at taking steps to preventing patients getting sick. The meds alone will work best if you consume garlic - not joking. Garlic will go everywhere in your body. The vermin might run away from the intestine and hide in muscles or under skin or even go to your brain - so as rank as garlic can be, make sure you always consume some garlic to stay on top. Home remedies include: -shower as soon as you get up each morning -use tea tree wipes after cleaning your butt - boil a cup of almond milk with 7 cloves of garlic and drink it first thing each morning - smash 80 pumpkin seeds and boil with almond milk then drink it - eat papaya - chew on cloves - Blend the water and meat of a young coconut and drink it - wear underwear and change as you see fit - clean toilet seat (home and public) with Milton wipes before and after using toilet. - Wash bedding, towels and bottoms at highest temperature - if infestation is visible then wash bedding daily - Spray rubbing alcohol on a cloth and use on door handles and switches and everything you touch a lot - like your computer keyboard - clean your floor/carpets - don't allow pets in your bedroom - desinfect shoe soles each time they enter your home - avoid eating out/getting take aways - soak fruit and veg on a bow for 30 mins in water and 1 big spoon of vinegar before consumption - drink bottled water or boil the water before drinking - everyone in the household needs to get treated
I have been having diarrhea for over a month now, it started just occasionally so i thought nothing of it but now its became a daily occurrence, I've also been having a very itchy anus which i chose to ignore until i thought maybe the two could be linked. A couple of weeks ago I noticed I had worms in my poo so I googled it and I am very certain I am suffering from threadworms. I'm way too worried to tell my parents because most websites say it's a common problem in children and I am far too embarrassed about it. I have taken strict hygiene measures and done everything I can but nothing is working and I'm so worried they are going to be here for life or cause even more serious issues. Is there anyway I can deal with this without having to tell my parents? I am over 16 is it possible to buy the medicine or do I have to have a prescription? Is it possible to see my GP without my mum finding out? Or even better is there a way I can get rid of the worms without taking any medicine? I am desperate but telling my parents is the absolute last thing I want to have to do! Is there any other way because I am so scared I will just suffer in silence until it's too late. Also is my diarrhea linked to this problem or is it a separate issue completely?? Please help I hate this so much!!!!!!!
Just go to the chemist and ask for ovex tablets. You need to take one straight away and one 2 weeks later. It's not your fault and your parents will defo have had it themselves at some point. They may even have it now or be the ones that gave it to you!! You don't need to see a Dr, just go to the chemist ASAP. It's horrible, I have it myself at the moment so I understand your misery. I work in a school.

How Do You Quickly Get Rid Of Worms, Without Telling Parents? Please Help, I Feel Really Disgusting
Weeeeeelll... I'm only 12 but i have had worms on and off and on and off for AGESSS but u just go to the chemists and get some worming tablets.. your whole family is meant to take one but i think thats just cause to check if they have it too. So probs not necessary, also u have to take another tablet 2 weeks after incase of ... eggs... which actually sounds disgusting but y'know :):) T XX
Go to the chemist and ask for a tablet for worms and they will give you a pack of about 4, take one and keep the rest in a safe place where they wont be found, when you shower put the towels straight in the wash and if your parents ask the towels are dirty, then when the itching stops you could take a 2nd tablet to make sure they are all gone but the tablet you get from the chemist should kill the eggs aswell as the worms, and next time you get an itch you can always take a tablet even if your unsure if you have them or not. I've done all this a few times you can sort it out with out having to tell your parents but every one gets them so might be worth telling your parents that way you get out of having to buy the tablets, but they dont cost that much
