Q.

vermox

I''m planning to give my son(5 yr) vermox this weekend for de-worming. I see he needs to take it for 3 consevartive days, which means if I start Saturday , Monday will be a last day. My question is, can I give it to him on monday morning and still send him to creche or do I need to keep him at home to be monitored? this will be my first time deworming him.
thanks

You can safely give your son the Monday morning dose of Vermox and then he can go off to creche. Many of the worms that children may have and may pass if they have Vermox are very small in size and are difficult to see in any case.
