In a healthy person in the stool should not be signs of any parasites. But parasitic diseases are very common and occur in 90% of the world population.
Due to the high probability of infection of parasitic diseases experts recommend to get tested twice a year.

The most well-known parasites are worms, or helminths.

Collection of stool for worm eggs

In order to properly collect your stool, you need to purchase a sterile jar. These jars are sold in any drugstore. They are very comfortable because they have a special spoon built into the lid. This facilitates sampling analysis. If you want to save money, you can use a small glass jar (e.g. baby food). First it should be well washed and scalded.

Special training before you can collect analysis is not required. Make sure that the kid peed in advance. Urine should not go in the analyses. It is recommended to take different parts of the stool: a piece from the center, then the top and bottom. In total there should be about two teaspoons of the material. The lid should be tightly closed and the jar to sign (surname and name).

Another important analysis is the scraping on enterobiosis

There is a second very common species of parasites - pinworms. To detect them is taken scraping on enterobiasis. Taking analysis is carried out in a medical facility or laboratory. In the morning, immediately after waking. It is recommended not to go previously to the toilet and not to wash the area around the anus. This is a quick and painless procedure. The nurse takes a swab from the anus.
Interestingly, the analysis of a feces on eggs a worm gives the probability of detection by 10-15%. Scraping on enterobiasis more likely - 50%. It is therefore recommended to get tested 2-3 times every two or three days.

Parents often wonder whether it is possible to store the tests. Experts recommend to take the material for analysis during the first hour after its collection. However, it can be stored in the refrigerator for 8 hours. Extended storage may skew the results.
