A single dose of Ovex? will kill threadworms. However, it may not destroy their eggs, which can cause re-infection and also infect other people. It is therefore strongly recommended that all members of the family (except pregnant and breast-feeding women and children under two) are treated at the same time and that precautions are taken to prevent re-infection.
If symptoms continue, tell your doctor.
In case of re-infection, a second tablet can be taken after two weeks.
