How To Treat Ascaris Lumbricoides

Treatment of Ascaris lumbricoides is usually simple and effective. If you have symptoms of Ascaris infection most experts recommend treatment. There are three drugs commonly used to treat Ascaris lubricoides; albendazole, ivermectin, and mebendazole. All three can be used as just a single dose. In cases of Ascaris lumbrioides infection without any symptoms often no treatment is used, as in cases where there are no male worms for the female adults to mate with the females will eventually die. In more severe cases, where the adult worms migrate out of the bowel and invade the liver, the appendix or the abdominal cavity surgery may be needed to remove the masses of worms or to repair damage to organs done by the worms.
