Go to the chemist and describe the worms that you both have and they will give you vermox or something like that. They will have a liquid for your child and a pill for you.

Anyone else living in the house and any domestic workers such as maids, gardeners, nannies, cooks etc in your home must be dewormed at hte same time, and you must get tablets for your animals as well. Deworm all people and animals at the same time. Write down the date of deworming and do it again in 6 months time - and every 6 months thereafter.

Ensure that everyone washes hands after using the toilet.
