 Signs you need to deworm

Infestation with worms is a common health risk that has ruined countless lives. More than 22 crore children between the ages of 1 and 14 were thought to have experienced worm infection in India alone in 2014, according to reports released by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Just on the surface, deworming appears to be a non-threatening procedure, but it can potentially be lethal for you if you don't get it.

Worm infestation is largely caused by our routinely filthy behaviors. Walking barefoot on the grass, using unwashed hands to eat, drinking untreated water or milk, cooking with unwashed vegetables, swimming in an untreated pool, or even receiving a little lick from a pet can all result in a worm infection.

An important main cause of India's soaring infant mortality rates is worm infection. The three parasites that cause infestation the most frequently are roundworms, tapeworms, and hookworms. Additionally, the severity and severity of the illness they produce can differ. Adult productivity may decline as a result of worm infection, which can also have an adverse impact on cognitive development and literacy.

Some of the typical signs of worm infestation include vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain, fatigue, anorexia, fever, itchy skin, and anemia.

Recent Soil Transmitted Helminth (STH) mapping by the National Center for Disease Control revealed high STH prevalence in much more than 14 Indian states in 2015. In response to the growing menace, the Indian government started the National Day Worming Program in 2015, which is celebrated annually on February 10.

The Ministry of Health announced that approximately 34 kids between the ages of 1 and 19 will be served by the deworming program this year as part of its greatest single-day public health endeavor. To track the effects of deworming tablets given to kids, the Ministry has also set up more than 200 Adverse Drug Reaction Monitoring Centers (AMCs).
