Just a quick question my eldest son has threadworms, I checked him tonight, I’ve read up on it and know it’s harmless and will be getting him to the docs tomorrow however I read something that worried me a little and just wondered if anyone knows if it’s true..

I read that you can never actually get rid of threadworms? Is that true? It said on the post that the tablet can bring down the population of threadworm but can never fully treat it? I just wondered if there was any truth in that?

  1. If treated correctly then yes you can
    This medication is 90-100% effective at killing the threadworms, but it doesn’t kill the eggs. This is why the hygiene measures outlined below should also be followed for six weeks. Visit your GP if the infection continues two weeks after treatment. They may recommend a second dose of medication
