A well known preparation for the treatment of single or mixed intestinal nematode infection, such as enterobiasis, ancyllostomiasis,and necatoriasis, ascariasis, and trichuriasis in other words - worms and their eggs, is MEBENDAZOLE 500mg. One (1) tablet usually suffices.

I thought that Niclosamide was used for the treatment of some worms as Albendazole only kills off some types.

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

had that issue in Thailand....freaked me out...
i went into a pharmacy and the lady gave me a hardcore green med ...you took 2 nasty tablets a day.
it worked great...
i was in disbelief that i could possibly have worms.
but, could not deny my eyes .
the sweet girl was professional and knew exactly what i needed...

Money is one of the most used items that is handled by multiple persons and usually without using protection such as gloves. I Cambodia you see the condition of some of the Reil and dollars at the markets and yes worms , among other germs, can be passed by handling cash.

I am aware of the general nastiness of paper currency.

I hope you're not equating germs and worms.

"Germs" bacteria, etc. are extremely microscopic whereas I think, worm eggs, larva etc are not, to the same degree.

Protozoa, maybe but worms? One can catch parasitic worms from handling paper currency?

I'd love to see a source for this Arget, as I've never heard this before. I'd love to be wrong and learn something new today.

You can get infected by:

touching objects or surfaces with worm eggs on them – if someone with worms doesn't wash their hands
touching soil or swallowing water or food with worm eggs in it – mainly a risk in parts of the world without modern toilets or sewage systems

Worm eggs are microscopic and can even be inhaled. It does seem feasible that the pork dealer at the market could spread invisible worm eggs with the change.
