HelloDo not use albendazole.The choice of medication is based on lab testing and what it shows.This does not even sound like it is worms, necessarily. Usually it would not be without symptoms .And usually the findings are microscopic.First have here see her doctor.Collect 3 samples with lab kits.One can not say that albendazole is the right mediation at this point, or even if she has worms.I am a double board certified US doctor.Please click a positive here.Find me as needed.
