My son might have thread worm if dad's o how dud he get it?

From pets

Pets
Parasites like worms are often transmitted from pets to humans by fecal contamination. If you have pets that are infected and you allow your pet to roam free and your child to crawl on the same floor, chances are he will later put his contaminated hands in his mouth and get infected.

Is albendazole a good medicine to give my 6 yearwith thread worm?

Secondary med

Praziquantel
Current reccomendations list Praziquantel at 5-10 mg/kg X 1 dose as the preferred agent for tapeworm due to effectiveness & simplicity of treatment. Albendazole at a dose of 15mg/kg divided 2X/day for 1-6 mo may be effective but is certainly a harder Rx to complete. See Harriet Lane Handbook of Pediatric Antimicrobial Therapy.

Unlikely

My 5 yr old Daughter is always hungry! I have treated her for thread worm but it hasn't helped.She has 3 meals a day and plus fruits and snaks

Busy!!

Women
5 year olds are very busy people. They are constantly in motion and may require more calories for their size than older kids or adults. They go through growth spurts for a while, and, at other times, eat very little. Make sure she is eating healthy snacks and meals. Make sure she isn't eating out of boredom, or for emotional reasons. If you are still worried, have her checked by her doctor.
