    right. so i take a dump today and there is something that looks like a long, thin dead worm passing through one of my lovely logs.

    *hypochondriacal qualities kick in*

    do i have intestinal parasites/worms?

    if i do.. what will safely remove them without side effects? are there drugs that can be bought over the counter at a chemist?

    what about taking pro biotics? will increasing my "good bacteria" remove the nasties? - yakult?

    all help appreciated.

    If it was a worm, you should see a GP - as far as I'm aware there aren't any over the counter preparations for some intestinal worms. Probiotics won't help as worms are not bacteria.

    will the probiotics not increase good bacteria which will kill the parasites?

    get a tablet from chemist, doctors will only tell u the same. They lay eggs at night and are hard to get rid of

    If you're at uni then you should be registered to a doctor in your uni town. If not then go to A+E.
