From few days my wife and I observed my daughter's face becoming pale and sudden changes in her eating pattern. She also complained of stomach ache. Few others also observed and suggested a medical checkup. We all think they have worms in her stomach. Though as routine we give her medicine to her for stomach worm (As prescribed here by doctors). But I feel we need another medical examination. Will take her to Doctor on Friday as this week she is having exams.

There may be some simple issues with her like indigestion. Since you are giving proper medicine for worms there won't be anything like that. But at times worms medicine won't works too. So seeking advise from doctor is the good thing.

@Bodyandbrain she is otherwise okey, just look pale and my father noticed this and suggested that worms could be reason behind it. I also observed her eating pattern change.

We were used to be dewormed by my mother when we were small kids. And my third sibling would result into many worms eliminated on her wastes. That's because she is fond of getting those bubble gums stuck on walls and chew them. Yaiks ! She grew up the most intelligent amongst us 5 siblings. I hope your daughter will be okay after being seen and treated by a doctor.

some times children eat some thing which is not healthy or not clean that results in stomach worms. I have seen my younger daughter some times she eats dirt it is indication. just one correct dose as doctor's prescription will turn her healthy

That seems like a really extreme thing to conclude on. Are stomach worms a common thing in your area? I hope she gets better soon and matters do not get worse.

@spaceseed Maybe food should be cooked a little better then? The only worms I know of is when food is eaten raw.

Seeing a doctor for more exams makes sense. If she is not responding to the medication, maybe there is another reason. Children's stomachs can be very sensitive, so hoping things work out for the best.

If you suspect intestinal parasites, the best thing to do is to see a doctor so he or she can request a stool examination or any other test that needs to be done. Hope your daughter gets well soon.
