School Lane, Pattishall, Towcester, Northants. NN12 8NE. Email, [email protected] , Website Dear Parents, We would like to make you aware that there have been several cases of threadworm in Reception. Consequently we recommend that you watch for the symptoms of this with your child/children (see below). We are taking extra hygiene precautions at school in order to prevent this spreading. We have installed hand sanitisers and are ensuring that children wash their hands effectively after toiletting and before eating. The following information is taken from the NHS Choices website Threadworms, also known as pinworms, are tiny parasitic worms that hatch eggs in and infect the large Threadworms are the most common type of worm infection in the UK, and they are particularly common in Threadworms are white and look like small pieces of thread. You may notice them around your child's bottom or in your or your child's stools. They don't always cause symptoms, but people often notice itchiness around their bottom or vagina. This can be worse at night and can sometimes disturb sleep. Read more about the symptoms of threadworms. If you think you or your child may have threadworms, you can usually treat the infection yourself with medication available at pharmacies without prescription. You only usually need to see your GP if you think you have threadworms and you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you think your child has threadworms and they are under two years old. This is because the treatment recommended in these circumstances is usually different to what is recommended for most Threadworms lay their eggs around an infected person's anus (bottom), usually at night. Along with the eggs, the worm also secretes a mucus that causes itching. If the eggs get stuck on the person’s fingertips when they scratch, they can be transferred to their mouth or onto surfaces and clothes. Other people who touch an infected surface can then transfer the eggs to their Threadworm eggs can survive for up to three weeks before hatching. If the eggs hatch around the anus, the newly born worms can re-enter the bowel. Eggs that have been swallowed will hatch inside the intestine. After two weeks, the worms reach adult size and begin to reproduce, starting the cycle again. Read more about what causes threadworms. If you or your child has threadworms, everyone in your household will need to be treated because the risk of the infection spreading is high. This includes people without any symptoms of a threadworm infection. For most people, treatment will involve a single dose of either mebendazole or piperazine to kill the worms. Another dose can be taken after two weeks, if necessary. Mebendazole is preferred for adults and children from two years of age, whereas piperazine is recommended for children between three months and two During treatment and for a few weeks afterwards, it is also important to follow strict hygiene measures to This involves things such as regularly vacuuming your house and thoroughly washing your bathroom and If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, hygiene measures are usually recommended without medication. This is also the case for children under three months old. Read more about treating threadworm infections. It is not always possible to prevent a threaworm infection, but you can significantly reduce your risk by always maintaining good hygiene and encouraging children to do the same. Children should wash their hands regularly, particularly after going to the toilet and before mealtimes. Kitchen and bathroom surfaces should be kept clean. If your child is infected, encouraging them not to scratch the affected area around their anus or vagina (in girls) will help prevent re-infection and reduce the risk of the infection spreading to other people.
