Ds has been complaining of an itchy bottom on and off for about 3 weeks now. Is this Deffo worms? I can't see anything if I look with a torch, but is that conclusive proof it isn't worms?

If it is, what do I do?? I'm totally clueless about this! Do I take him to the doctors or would chemist be able to treat?

Help! It's freaking me out! ^^

Yes treat for worms and if its been going on a few weeks I would treat everyone in the family as well, also all bedding, towels etc will need to be washed. In the Ovex info leaflet it gives some good advice on reducing the chance of re infection.
