Hi, thanks, ***** ***** your query, will be replying in few seconds please. DrVasavada
First one has to confirm diagnosis of threadworm. There is celluloid film test for seeing ova under microscopy.
Mebendazole is given for a day for this infestation (Ovex). Please try local clotrimazole lotion/cream for itching down there.
You are welcome. If on taking Ovex you did not pass worm in stool, that is not the problem. Diarrhea will not prevent drug acting on worm, as it is not absorbed internally to act. Please persist with clotrimazole cream as also hydrocortisone once before bed. Oral cetirizin once will also aid sleep if taken at bedtime.
You are welcome and good luck.
