How Combantrin Works
Combantrin is effective against threadworm as well as the rare worms roundworm & hookworm, in a single dose. It contains pyrantel embonate, which works as a "neuro-muscular blocking agent" - effectively paralysing worms. Unable to move, worms are passed out in the faeces.
All human worming products will treat only adult worms present in the intestine at the time of taking the medication. They will not treat the eggs or immature worms & will not protect you or your children from contracting threadworm if you are exposed to it again. So it's advisable to check roughly 2 weeks after the initial dose to ensure a second dose is not required.
Here is a handy checklist to help prevent reinfestation of threadworm in your home:
As threadworm are highly contagious, ensure the WHOLE FAMILY has been treated with Combantrin - including Mum & Dad.
Threadworm eggs may be left on common household surfaces, so give your home a thorough clean. Vacuum carpets & wash floors, clothes & bedding with hot water, to kill any remaining eggs. Don't forget the favourite teddy or security blanket, & take care not to shake linen when removing bedclothes - you could be spreading infectious eggs into the air.
Shower rather than bathe for several days after treatment, to dislodge any remaining eggs from the anal region.
Snug underpants fitted to children at night may make it harder to scratch, therefore reducing the risk of eggs transferring to fingers.
Wash hands thoroughly & encourage children to do the same, especially after going to the toilet Ensure fingernails are kept short & scrubbed clean.
Discourage children from sharing food & placing objects in their mouths.
- Notify your friends & the school / kindy that you have treated for threadworm. Informing others will help to break the cycle of threadworm infestation.
