yes there is a cure.. go to the doctor and he will prescribe a medicine called hetrazane. i was also suffering from filaria and i was told to take to hetrazane for 5years every 6months for 3weeks 6tablets daily. after the meals. the amount of tablets will be given according to your weight. please do see a doctor dont wait for years. yoga want help it. the worm will grow to avoid grwoing and laying eggs you need to take this medicine. 5years of medicine is for incase if the big worm is inside to die. cos the medicine will stay for 6months and i got it again so every 6months need to take to complete my 5years it has reduced now. its been 2years now.. it has reduced..

Mr. Swain,
Thanks for advice. My father, who is 70 years old, has got the swollen feet 15 days before and subsequently diagnosed for Filaria worm.He has been taking medicine since then as per doctor's recommendation. But doctor has prescribed the medicine for 21 days. Does this mean after completing this course, the filaria worms shall be eliminated?
He is already continuing medicines for his diabatic and HIGH BP problems for last 5 years. This recent diagnostic of filaria worm and consumption of prescribed medicines are making him restless and vulnerable. What to do?
Best regards,
