Management as follows... - Mebendazole (Mebex): chewable 100-mg tablet as a single dose in adults and children >2 years of age, may repeat in 2 to 3 weeks, use with caution in children <2 years of age. OR - Albendazole (Bandy): 400 mg PO as a single dose in adults and children >2 years of age, may repeat in 2 to 3 weeks, 200 mg PO as a single dose repeated in 7 days in children ≤2 years of age. OR - Pyrantel pamoate (Thelmex): oral liquid or tablet 11 mg/kg as a single dose in adults and children >2 years of age, maximum dose 1 g. Use with caution in children <2 years of age. AND - Repeat treatment after 2 weeks is often recommended due to the high frequency of reinfection. Refractory cases may (rarely) require retreatment every 2 weeks for 4 to 6 cycles. AND - All symptomatic family members should be treated.

Albendazole 400mg + Ivermectin 12mg Chew the tablet & repeat after a week. This process is to be done twice a year. Personal hygiene is a must. No barefoot walking, cutting of nails, cleanliness, use toilet (no open defecation).
