How do I know if my child has worms?

The most common signs that your child may have worms include:

• Itching around the bottom, especially at night

• Disturbed sleep, which may lead to bedwetting

• Reduced appetite

• Restlessness and irritability

• Grinding teeth

• Inflammation of the vagina in girls

But sometimes, there may be no symptoms at all.

The best way to confirm if your child has worms is if you can see them.
