How does Ovex suspension work?
The way Ovex suspension does its wonderful job is via its main active ingredient, mebendazole, which in itself is a medicine explicitly designed fo treat nefarious internal worms.

Although Ovex suspension kills the adult worms, it doesn't do the same to their eggs, so it's extremely important to be very thorough with hygiene, even after the initial treatment.
