Abdominal pain due to intestinal worm!!
Hi, my 8 year old kid frequently complain of abdomen pain and yesterday I noticed a worm in stool. He has also very low appetite. Do I need to give any drug or will it be resolved naturally? please guide.
Worms are most common reason of abdominal pain, decreased appetite and failure to thrive in kids. There are many medicines prescribed for deworming like albendazole, levamisole, Niclosamide, Praziquantel etc. You should consult your pediatrician for appropriate deworming drug for your kid and administration methods.
