Round worm infection is a very common ailment in children of growing age. It can remain asymptomatic without eliciting any sign or symptom. But in the intestine, it tends to feed on your child’s nutrition, interferes with absorption and the child becomes anemic, underweight & malnourished in spite of a normal healthy appetite. Therefore, periodic de-worming is recommended in children.
