Thanks for writing to us.
It is important to find out which type of worm infection you are suffering from. There are hundreds of worms which enter the body and the treatment varies depending on the type of the worm.
So, ideally you should get a stool routine/microscopy done. It is a simple test and is available everywhere.
If you want a broad spectrum drug which would cure mostly all types, then tablet Albendazole is good to start with. Take tablet Zentel 400mg once in night, then in morning check for worms coming out in stools. Repeat the same dose for 3 nights. Mostly all types of worms will be evacuated by this.
For anal itching, please apply Quadriderm ointment to remove the ulceration and inflammation which the worms have caused.
If you need any other clarification or if you get the report of the stool test, please feel free to write to us back --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/medical-gastroenterologist
