THREADWORMS

Threadworms are parasites that live in human intestines. They are the most common cause of worms in Australia and infection is very common. Anyone can get threadworm infection, but because of the way it spreads, children are more susceptible than adults. Medicines and thorough cleaning can eradicate threadworm infection. Threadworms look like short pieces of white cotton (about 5-10mm long) that move. They only infect humans and threadworm infection spreads when eggs pass from one person to another. Dogs, cats and other animals do not get threadworms or pass them on to people. People can catch other worm infections from animals (e.g., hookworms, hydatid disease, toxocariasis), but this is not common in Australia.
