Reddish brown worm

I frequently find reddish brown worm in the water in the commode. I am not sure it is present only in the water or whether it was passed through the stool. I find this disturbing. Is there a deworming OTC drug I can take to be on the safe side? Don't know the species of the worm.

hello there. the worms you find could be coming from the water itself, so I don't think there is any need to worry. if u have any other symptoms, I suggest you go visit a doctor for further evaluation. thank you.
