Q.

Tummy, nausea &  itchy bum

Hi there. My daughter of 7yrs have been complaining of tummy aches for the last 3 weeks. She says she feels like vomiting and today she started complaining of an ithcy bum. Could this be worms? We dewormed the whole family in January as we have pets in the house. My son seems to be fine though. I took her to the dr last week and she gave her antibiotics for the tummy &  nausea, but it is still going on. What to do now? They also found blood traces &  white blood cells in her urine when they tested last week. Thanks.

It is certainly possible that your daughter has a pinworm infection. Give her Vermox Syrup 5ml twice daily for 3 days. Her urine should also be tested again for a possible urinary system infection.
