De-worming
Dear doc,

I have heard about de-worming in toddlers and I am not sure what is it and how to do it. Can you give me advice. I am asking because I have an 11 months old baby boy.

Thank you

Mpho, the best would be to wait until he’s older than 1 year. In the meantime you should check his stools to make sure that he does have worms otherwise you will waste money and unnecessarily expose your child to drugs. Good luck.
