Drugs for tapeworms: niclosamine and praziquantel; pinworms: pyrantel
pamoate, albendazole, mebendazole.
The best way for a patient possibly infected by parasites will be to
attend a consultation in an Infectious Diseases Dept, or in a Dept
specialized in Parasitology, if available.
Helminthic (namely, worms) parasites often are suspected due to a blood
hypereoesinophilia, but there are many, many, others symptoms: it's
practically a complete handbook which would be to post on the Net!!!
