It's possible to die from a worm infection if you don't take care of it; if you engage in these activities, you should deworm frequently.
Worm infestation is a common health issue that needs to be addressed soon or it can be fatal.
Round worms can cause dry cough and wheezing, hookworm can cause anemia (iron deficiency), and rare worms can cause major health issues.
Worm infestations are especially dangerous for children, so keep an eye on them and make sure they wash their hands frequently, don't eat anything from the floor, and keep their surroundings clean.
Itchy anus, loss of appetite, fatigue, abdominal pain, vomiting, and other worm infestation symptoms are indicators that you should take a worm expeller/dewormer.
If you (or your children) engage in these actions, deworming should be done on a regular basis:
1. Go for a barefoot stroll.
One of the most likely ways to get a worm infestation is to walk barefoot on grass.
You should deworm your feet if you walk barefoot on a daily basis.
2. Consume water that hasn't been filtered.
If you drink unclean water or don't know where it came from, you should deworm frequently since worms enter the body through the mouth and cause health problems and, in some circumstances, death.
If you swim in public pools, you should deworm on a regular basis because untreated and dirty water, in any form, is a simple way to bring worms (and diseases) into your body.
If you have pets and kiss and peck them frequently, you should deworm periodically because worms can be transmitted into the human body/system through touch with these pets/animals.
Drinking milk on a regular basis is another way for worms to enter the body (in rare cases), thus if you drink all kinds of milk all the time, you should deworm periodically.
Other instances include not washing hands regularly enough (dirty hands), not cleaning fruits and vegetables well enough, and more.
Deworming is a widely disregarded treatment, yet it is critical since fatal cases of worms causing systemic damage have been observed.
