- Effectively kills threadworms
- Family sized pack
- Orange flavoured
A single tablet treatment for threadworms for the whole family.
The Ovex family pack contains 4 single tablet treatments for threadworms. Threadworms are small, white thread-like worms that live in your gut and can be seen in your stool (poo). They are harmless but commonly cause itchiness and irritation around the anus, especially at night-time.
Ovex tablets work by stopping the worms from absorbing the sugars they need to survive. A single dose of Ovex will kill threadworms, but will not destroy their eggs, which can cause re-infection and also infect other people. We therefore strongly recommended that all members of your family (except pregnant and breast feeding women and children under two) take these tablets and are treated at the same time to prevent re-infection.
