Hookworm Infection
Hello! I was diagnosed with hookworm infection in 2014 after complaining of untreated constipation. I consulted a doc who prescribed me antibiotics which i stopped taking after few days. Nowadays my condition has become worse and severe. Poop and gas smells like a gutter. I feel embarrassed and very concerned about this prob. A person may die or faint if he smell it. Has it become of worse because i did not completed dose? Is it treatable now? Will i ever get rid of these parasites? Can this infection lead to death and Erectile Dysfunction? Please help!

Hello Hookworm infestation is a common and easy to treat parasitic infection. You would have been given anti-helminthic tablets at that time. Your present symptoms may not be related to hookworm infestation. You please consult your physician or Gastroenterologist and he will advice you accordingly. This is not going to cause death or erectile dysfunction.
