This answer was rated:

Hi my daughter has pin worms and we were given vermox by our doctor on Thursday and everyone had it then. Tonight I have noticed that they are still there. I have disinfected the whole house (twice) with clean bedding and towels every time we have all showered (twice a day). What I would like to know is, can I give her more medicine before the next dose is due in two weeks time as they are still there 3 days later??
Thanks

5ml which she had on Thursday evening she is 8 years old

Ok. You can give her upto 03 doses of 5ml (100mg) twice daily (morning and evening) upto three consecutive days. Nothing really happens, except rarely nausea
