I would like to ask a few more questions:
Ok, thank for those answers.Would recommend that he see his regular physician so they can test and see what type of worm/parasite and that will help direct treatment. Its not emergent or urgent, but he should have follow up since long-term infections may cause diarrhea, weight loss and some times anemia due to blood loss. Treatment is usually with medications that are very effective.
