Question & Answer Sheet
How do I now if my children have threadworms?
Often there are no symptoms but indication of infestation may include:
• Persistent scratching of the bottom/ itchy bottom
• Restless sleep
• Loss of appetite & irritability. If you suspect threadworms:
• Using a torch, look for moving worms around the anus, either an hour after the child has gone to bed or if
they wake during the night. Press a piece of sticky tape over the anus. Any eggs/worms will adhere to the tape
• Look for worms on the outside surface of bowel motions.
If my child has worms, is poor personal hygiene the cause?
No, it doesn’t matter how young or old, how clean or how careful, you are.
Are threadworms contagious?
Yes, threadworms are easily spread by swallowing their tiny eggs and they often lodge under fingernails.
Eggs are infective within a few hours of being deposited and may remain viable for up to 3 weeks.*
Is the person with threadworms the only one who needs treatment?
No, the whole family should be treated at the same time to reduce the risk of re-infestation from one member
of your family to another. Remember, not everyone with threadworms show symptoms.
Is there anything else I should do?
Yes, after treatment, give your home an intensive clean and vacuum. Wash clothes and bedding in hot water
Can I prevent threadworm re-infestation?
Yes. • Shower rather than have a bath for 2 days after treatment to ensure any remaining eggs around
• Until children are toilet trained, take special care when handling their excreta • Hands should be washed thoroughly, especially after going to the toilet • Finger nails should be short and kept scrubbed clean • Discourage children from sharing food and from placing objects into their mouths.
