Thank you for visiting health24.com.
I advise that you take the worm to a doctor for analysis. You should apply Bactroban over the area to prevent secondary infection of the skin. Bactroban is available over the counter and can be used two to three times per day. You should also de-worm your son by giving him a de-worm tablet, also available at Pharmacies.
