How to Treat Tapeworms?

Medical Treatment:
  • A tapeworm infection can be treated by niclosamide or praziquantel. This kills the worm so it passes out in your poo
  • Make sure you wash your hands regularly in the weeks after taking the tablet - Especially before eating and after using the toilet (it avoid any eggs getting into your mouth and infecting you again)
  • A few months later, a sample of your poo will be checked to see if the treatment has worked
  • Even if you have passed a large piece of worm, this does not always mean it is fully gone. If some of it is left in your gut, it could regrow
