Ascariasis in a 6-month old baby?
The Lab has found Ascariasis roundworms in my 6-month old baby’s stool sample. Pediatrician is puzzled, since the medication for the ascariasis, mebendazole, is not recommended to be given under 2 years. She recommended only a pumpkin seeds for two weeks and than to see what the tests will say, however, I have doubts that that will make any larger improvements, i.e. get rid of it completely.
I seek for an answer from someone who knows what they are taking, since a baby is in question there can be no mistakes.
I already know the methods for sanitation of everything, but I need something that my baby can take orally and what will work.
Update: I have found from an untrusted source that Albendazole can be administered to children from 6 months, but the problem is that there is no syrup nor Pediatritian and Pharmacists know for sure.
