Threadworms are tiny worms that infest your gut and you can spot in your poo. They have the appearance of thin, white threads and are common among children. Threadworms can cause irritation and itchiness around the anus, especially at night.
These tablets contain the active ingredient mebendazole, which is used for treating threadworm infections of the gut. Ovex Family Pack Tablets work by preventing the worms from being able to absorb sugars in the body which are essential for their survival. This causes the worms to lose energy drastically and eventually die within a few days. Dead worms are naturally excreted from the gut in the stools.
