    If you're at uni then you should be registered to a doctor in your uni town. If not then go to A+E.
    If you go to A&E they will send you away. This is NOT an emergency situation or something that needs to be treated immediately and you'd just waste your time queuing. If it happens again, go see a GP. It's a good idea to register with a doctor at uni anyway. Does your uni have a nurse who you could possibly go to see?

    If the OP is not registered to a doctor in his uni town then the people at A+E will direct him to the GP on duty at the hospital. But they will have to be prepared for a long wait.

    is that even a joke?

    and i'm a uni.. so my doctor is miles and miles and miles away in my home town.. suggestions?
    I think you can fill in a form that allows you to be temporarily registered at the doctors in your uni town whilst still being registered fully with your doctors at home. If you go to the doctors in your uni town and ask if you can temporary register for their doctors they might be able to help you.

    For future reference, if you wanted to you could get your medical records transferred so that you would be fully registered in your uni town and temporarily registered when you go home. That's what I do anyway!

    You may want to look out for these in future if it is worms, uncooked or unwashed food, contaminated water, or hands, or by skin contact with larva infected soil. People can also become infected with intestinal parasites if they have mouth contact with the genital or rectal area of a sexual partner who is infected...
    I don't think it is worms to be honest unless you've expierienced coughing, cramping abdominal pain, bloating, 'gas' or diarrhea. In more serious infections, weight loss, skin-itching, fever, nausea, vomiting, or bloody stools may occur. So I dunno, had any of those?
    If so see a GP, does your campus/uni not have a nurse :confused: I don't think GPs can refuse to see you, but you should probs go to A+E. Good luck x

    The worms are supposed to be there i think so nothing will get rid of them.

    You have enough lymphocyte wb cells in your body so they will kill the worms for you til the day you die in which the white blood cells cease to function therefore the worms eat your body! :eek:

    There's a simple OTC medicine (Tablet) from the pharmacy called Ovex. That should do the trick.

    On the boots website it's listed as £6.49 for tablets, however that's for a family - so you may be able to get a smaller pack?

    Oh good lord... I seriously doubt it's any sort of intestinal worm, this is Britain not the Third World, in fact they may be threadworms, annoying and itchy yes, dangerous, life threatening, no.

    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.
    Ancient Scottish remedy: stick Mars Bar in between buttocks and firmly up anus, and wait half an hour. Remove, and worms will be removed inside Mars Bar. Remember not to eat it afterwards, Ha, Ha!
