Threadworms and Roundworms

Keen PharmacyEmbarrassingThreadworms and Roundworms

Threadworms (also known as pinworms) are threadlike, white worms about a centimetre long. They can often be seen in the stools or on the toilet paper, where they look like threads of white cotton.

Threadworms are very common, especially in children. As many as 4 out of 10 children suffer from threadworms before their tenth birthday. People of all ages can catch threadworms, however careful they are about cleanliness.

Threadworms cannot be caught from pets since they only live on humans. Even the cleanest household can catch threadworms because the microscopic eggs are easily carried on clothes and bed linen, on skin, under fingernails and on food. threadworms are passed from person to person very easily so it important to follow a few simple hygiene rules. If followed carefully for six weeks they will reduce the risk of threadworms coming back into your home. Either Pripsen or Ovex can be used to treat Threadworms.

Roundworms are generally much longer than threadworms and can have a longer lifecycle. They can be caught from several sources eg. pets or soil. Where roundworm is suspected, Pripsen sachets can be used.

If you have any questions or would like more information please call the pharmacist on 01260 295701.
