FAQs

Q. How can I know that my child is having a worm infection?

In case of worm infestations, your child may complain of an itchy bottom (rectal area), difficulty sitting, fatigue, restless sleep due to anal itching, or persistent stomach pain with loss of appetite or frequent indigestion. Another sign of worm infection is Pica (a habit of eating inedible substances such as mud). Speak to your child’s doctor as soon as you notice any such signs in your child. The doctor may ask for your child’s stool and blood samples for examination. Depending upon the reports, the doctor will decide upon the treatment and prescribe your child some medicine.

Q. How can my child become infected with intestinal worms?

Children typically develop infections very easily due to weak immunity. The infection can be transmitted from the eggs of worms present in human feces which contaminate soil in areas with poor sanitation. These worms and their eggs can get transmitted by drinking contaminated water or by eating contaminated vegetables and fruits without washing or peeling properly. Your child may also get infected by playing in the soil that is contaminated with the eggs of the worms. So, keep a note of these points and take proper care of their hygiene. Ask your child to properly clean hands and legs after returning from outdoor activities.

Q. What are the serious side effects of Vermisol 50mg Syrup?

Prolong or excess intake of Vermisol 50mg Syrup can cause serious side effects such as seizures and low blood count. Therefore, it is advised not to give Vermisol 50mg Syrup if your child is already suffering from a seizure disorder. Also, your child’s doctor may monitor the complete blood cell (CBC) in your child at regular intervals.

Q. Can other medicines be given at the same time as Vermisol 50mg Syrup?

You can give your child medicines meant to relieve pain and fever unless your doctor has told you not to. However, some medicines should be avoided while being on medication with Vermisol 50mg Syrup. So, to avoid any risk of side effects, talk to your child’s doctor before giving any other medicines to your child.

Q. What is the best time to give Vermisol 50mg Syrup to my child?

Vermisol 50mg Syrup can be given at any time of the day. Just remember to give it in the dose and way as prescribed by your child’s doctor.
