Can you catch them?
Yes you can catch worms by ingesting the juvenile forms like the eggs.
If a member of the family has parasites, it is best to check the remaining immediate family
for signs of infestation. It is best that the whole family have treatment and that all sources for possible recontamination are removed. i.e. bedding, towels, shared items are thoroughly cleaned.
How do you treat a parasitic infection?
Treatment is determined by the diagnosis. Pripsen is commonly used for Ascaris infections and other round worms, but the treatment may involve several courses, several weeks apart, to kill the parasite as it develops from an egg to its adult form.
