    Never heard of that before and I doubt it would work anyways. We used to give dogs a wad of tobacco to get rid of worms, but I think you should take the kid to the doc.

    For most states, giving children alcohol for any reason is highly illegal.

    Go to the doctor to get medicine for the worms.

    No, never give a child beer. Take it to a Doctor or go to a herb store.

  • Please tell me you're not serious.

    First of all beer will not get rid of worms.

    Second of all, if your child has worms, why haven't you taken him or her to a doctor.

    Giving a child alcoholic beverages is not only ILLEGAL, but it is CHILD ABUSE!

    I would say, "Bad idea."

    Has your child been diagnosed with worms? You should see a doctor and have he/or she diagnose your child and suggest a better method.

    Never heard of this and not recommended. Your local Pharmacy has several different brands of worm treatments - try one.

    I wouldn't suggest it...

    ever heard of alcohol poisioning?

    ever heard of CPS or DCFS? They might come on knock'in on your door...and I hope they do...since you are even bothering to ask this question....guess common sense isn't so common.

    Ask the child's doctor. I don't think that would help.
