    Default Worming under two?

    My four yo ds has symptoms of having worms, I just popped down to the chemist and grabbed a four pack of the chocolate squares. I have just read not to give to under two, dd is 17months do I just not worm her?

    I've recently gone through the same thing. Pharmacist said it was fine to give conbantrin chocolate squares to my dd who was 19months at the time. Make sure you wash all bedding etc and give showers instead of bath for the next few days.

    There are two different worming medications available. The one containing pyrantel can be used for children under 2. It is dosed by weight. If the box says not to use for under 2 year old it sounds like you have the other one. HTH!
