I might have accidentally swallowed tiny amounts of dog stools and worried about the roundworm, tapeworm infections which may lead to death? Pls help?

In brief: Won't die

Round worms / tape worms are annoying and rarely uncomfortable but you won't die.
If you have accidental exposure (such as eating with unwashed hands after cleaning up from an infected animal) have your doctor test your own poop. Simple medications are avaialbe, if needed.
