Should I call the doctor if I think I have roundworms?

Yes. Your doctor can perform the necessary tests needed to diagnose you properly. He or she will also provide you with the necessary medications. Make sure to tell your doctor if you have eaten any raw or undercooked meats, traveled to an area with poor hygiene and sanitation practices, or have come into contact with wild animals or infected pets.
