Q.

deworming

Hi

My son is 4 years old and i gave him vermox (once off dose) at the beginning of the year. He now sometimes complain that his bum is ore and itchy. Can i deworm him again or must i wait until six months has passed. My youngest son will be 2 in may, he plays in the sand a lot, when can i deworm him?

thanx

You can deworm them both using the same dose of Vermox-5ml twice daily for 3 days.
