Vermox, also known as Mebendazole, belongs to the anthelmintic (antiparasitic) group of medicines used to treat worm infections.
Vermox can be taken in tablet form or as an oral suspension to treat threadworm, along with other worm infections including ringworm and hookworm. When taken, Vermox kills all existing worms which can then be expelled from the body naturally within 3 days.
Threadworms (also known as pinworms) are small parasitic worms that grow inside the intestines, typically surviving between 5-6 weeks before dying.
Whilst threadworms can often be symptomless in small numbers, an untreated infection can quickly become difficult to control. Through excessive itching of the anus where eggs are laid, threadworm is easily spread to other parts of the body as well as to other people.
Treating threadworm as soon as possible is important to reduce the risk of the infection spreading, as well as working to prevent the occurrence of other symptoms such as vaginal inflammation or skin infections.
Vermox contains Mebendazole, which works as a preventative to stop worms from absorbing the sugars they need to survive in the body. Typically, those infected with threadworm will only require one treatment in order to kill all the worms.
Once taken, it can take up to 3 days for all the dead worms to pass through the body, by which time you should be all clear.
Although threadworms can only exist for up to 6 weeks in the body, it can be difficult to completely eradicate the infection if proper precautions aren’t taken. Once treated, it is important to ensure that those infected, and all other members of the household maintain high hygiene standards to prevent eggs from spreading and re-infection occurring.
This can be achieved by routinely washing all night clothes and bed linen, maintaining a high level of self-hygiene and ensuring that the house is kept clean at all times to eradicate any existing eggs that may have been spread to surfaces throughout the home. Avoiding the biting of fingernails or any direct contact between hand and mouth can also help to prevent re-infection from occurring.
When treating threadworm in adults, only one Vermox tablet is required to kill the infection, and this can be chewed or swallowed whole. Although the treatment is 90-100% effective, it may be advised by your doctor or pharmacist to take a second tablet in two weeks’ time to reduce the risk of reinfection.
To treat threadworm quickly and efficiently, you can buy Vermox online from Prescription Doctor today. If you are in doubt about dosage or have any questions about your medication, we advise that you speak with your doctor or pharmacist who will be able to advise you.
While Mebendazole eradicates the parasitic worms residing in the intestines, the medicine does not kill the eggs which may have been laid during the night. As such, high standards of hygiene should to prevent further infections.
Reinfection of threadworms can be prevented by:
If you or your child continues to experience symptoms of threadworms after two weeks, speak to your doctor for advice.
