Threadworms - how long before no more in stool

(1 Post)

DC2 has had a case of threadworms. The whole family has been dosed with Ovex (two weeks ago on discovery and 14 days later). I cleaned everything I could and everyone has been showering first thing, which is making the before school rush interesting.

DC2 went to the loo just before bed and I saw several worms in his stool. They appeared dead but I had hoped we would be clear by now.

We took the last dose 4 days ago (on Friday evening), based on experience when should we stop seeing any signs in his stool?
