The need for treatment
In the human body, worms harm many organs and release toxic substances. Children infected with helminthiasis look weak, do not feel well and have a capricious behavior. Against the background of the presence of parasites, many diseases of internal organs can develop, up to cirrhosis of the liver.
The selection of the drug and its dosage for children is an important issue that should be entrusted to the pediatrician. Before taking medicine for worms, preparations may be prescribed to prepare the body. For children, Enterosgel can be chosen, which is suitable for cleansing the toxic waste products of parasites.

Ways of infection and prevention
The most common route of infection of children with worms is oral-fecal. Parasites enter the body from the ground and contaminated objects due to non-compliance with sanitary and hygienic rules. You can get infected if you do not wash your hands after working with the ground or playing with pets, as well as in violation of the cooking technology. It is important to carefully process meat and fish, since long heat treatment is needed to completely destroy the parasites. Fruits and vegetables should be thoroughly washed under running water. Ingestion of eggs of worms is possible if water is accidentally swallowed while swimming in a pond.
Adults are much less susceptible to helminthic infestations than children. This is due to the weak protective barrier of the child's body and the curiosity of the child, who pulls many things into his mouth. Most often, it is children who infect adult relatives.

Once we saw parasites in the feces of our domestic cat. They treated her and the whole family. For adults, I bought Nemozole in tablets, for a child - in the form of a suspension. The child and I had no side effects, and the other adults felt a little nauseous. They decided not to give the cat any more raw meat so that such situations would not arise.
