Ovex contains the active ingredient Mebendazole, which is an anthelmintics (antiparasitic) type of medicine used to treat parasitic infections.
This medication is licensed for the treatment of threadworm (pinworm) and can be taken in both tablet form and as an oral suspension for adults and children over the age of 2.
Threadworms are a type of parasitic infection which live in the intestines and around the anus. Although extremely common, threadworm can be rather unpleasant and can be easily spread if proper precautions aren’t taken.
These small parasitic worms can live in the body for anywhere up to 6 weeks before dying, however in that time female threadworms will lay eggs around the anus which often leads to excessive itchiness. Through scratching, threadworm can be easily spread to other parts of the body, other surfaces and other people making this parasitic infection hard to control if left untreated.
Although small numbers of threadworm can often be symptomless, without treatment parasitic infections can often lead to other conditions occurring such as skin infections or vaginitis (inflammation of the vagina) in women.
Mebendazole, the active ingredient of Ovex, inhibits the worms' ability to absorb sugar, which they need to survive
When treated with Ovex, threadworms will die and be excreted from the body through defecation within 3 days.
Ovex is taken as a single dose and is 90-100% effective in killing threadworm. If symptoms persist, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Whilst just one dose of Ovex is enough to kill existing threadworm, it does not kill the eggs, and so ensuring that you maintain high levels of hygiene will help to prevent re-infection from occurring. This can be achieved by ensuring that all members of the household maintain high levels of self-hygiene (keeping hands clean at all times), as well as keeping the environment clean (through hoovering and dusting) to eradicate any existing threadworm eggs.
You can buy Ovex online today from Prescription Doctor for fast, efficient and discreet treatment of threadworm. If you have any questions about your medication, we advise to contact your doctor or pharmacist who will be able to advise you on the best course of action.
While the medicine kills the worms inside the intestines, Mebendazole does not kill the eggs which may have been laid. For this reason, a strict cleaning regime should be implemented to prevent further infections.
You can prevent reinfection of threadworms by:
If, after two weeks, you or your child continues to experience symptoms of threadworms, you should seek advice from your doctor.
