I guess I've hit the two extremes then - pulling a live Ascaris worm out of my kid's butt and then calling the doc and having her say that she experienced the same thing when her daughter was a toddler! I am lucky she's had personal experience with it. We will see her in about 1-1/2 weeks when our insurance starts. It will be day 14 of our ParaGONE cleanse. I saved the worm in a jar and plan to bring it in for her to see, if it hasn't decomposed by then. I can't bear to look at it and will have my husband hide it in a bag for me! I understand that testing isn't necessarily going to confirm anything so I am assuming she'll take the worm itself as proof enough.
The 22 day number was helpful because I was intending to ask her for two doses of the drug, and for everyone, anyway, but I didn't know how to space it.
I have oil of oregano capsules and started taking them. I was just afraid to add too much at once... I read that elecampane is quite safe for children so I will look into taking that as well.
