FAQ's For Intestinal Worms

Some types of worms like tapeworms can go away without treatment provided the patient has a strong immune system, good hygiene and maintains a healthy diet. However, in most cases anti-parasitic medication will be required to treat the infection. Treatment options will vary depending on the type of worm and symptoms exhibited.

Symptoms such as the following may start to appear: diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain or tenderness, gas, bloating, fatigue, sudden weight loss, dysentery (an intestinal infection causing blood and mucus in the stool), or itching or rashes around the rectum or vulva.

The following are the best forms of medicine for various intestinal worms:
Tapeworm—Oral medication called praziquantel (Biltricide), which paralyzes the adult tapeworm, detaches it from the gut, dissolves it and finally passes it out through the stool.
Roundworm—Anthelmintics like bendazole (Vermox, Emverm) and albendazole (Albenza) Fluke—Triclabendazole

Intestinal worms cannot be cured solely with herbal medicines, especially in severe infections. It is recommended to use herbal formulations in tandem with antiparasitic medications prescribed by a doctor.

Avoid eating raw or undercooked beef, pork and seafood to reduce the chances of infection.

Intestinal worms, or parasitic worms are organisms that live in the small intestine and grow in size, eventually gaining the ability to reproduce. After this, symptoms such as the following may start to appear:
Diarrhoea
Nausea
Vomiting
Abdominal pain or tenderness
Gas
Bloating
Fatigue
Sudden weight loss
Dysentery (an intestinal infection causing blood and mucus in the stool)
Itching or rashes around the rectum or vulva

There are two types of intestinal worms in humans: round and flat. Roundworms include ascariasis, pinworm, whipworm, and hookworm, while flatworms include tapeworms and flukes. The most common way to get infected by an intestinal worm is by eating undercooked meat from an animal carrying the parasite, such as cows, fish, and usually pig. Other causes for intestinal worm infection include:
Consumption of contaminated water or soil
Contact with contaminated faeces
Poor sanitation and personal hygiene

Children, especially those living in slums and extreme poverty, are most susceptible to catching stomach worms. This is due to the low levels of sanitation, poor hygiene and a child’s frequent contact with contaminated soil especially while playing. The World Health Organization estimates that about 10% of people are infected with intestinal worms in the developing world.
