Add ivermectin. Syp bandy plus 10 ml per oral stat. Repeat after 2 weeks. Take history of pica. Trim the nails of child. Proper hand washing after using toilet. A deworming session for all family members. Plus wash the underwear of the child properly too. U add piperazine too. Its a paralytic agent.

Thank you doctor
