no need for the cayenne test, every time I eat a huge amount of garlic, these small, threadlike, bonecolored things are visible. (two sizes: big ones and small ones, the small ones seem to hang on the big ones, ergo: males and females)
And my behind just started to itch like mad. instant relief with the cream.
And my partner just called to tell me my big pack of albendazole has arrived. Time to complete my 63 days.
(it takes three rounds to kill all of them, three generations of worms, and as long as you still have one generation hanging around, no chance.)When you had worms for so long, you have them in all ages, and since the meds only kill the adults, you have to take the meds in intervals of 21 days, which is the time the larvae need to become an adult.
btw, did you know that they have a speed of 12cm an hour? that males multiply by parting, and females come from the eggs? that males can also come from unfertilised eggs?
Ah, the fun of scientific reading.
