Meaning of Vermifuge
Anthelmintics or antihelminthics are drugs that expel parasitic worms (helminths) and other internal parasites from the body by either stunning or killing them and without causing significant damage to the host. They may also be called vermifuges (those that stun) or vermicides (those that kill). They are used to treat people or animals who are infected by helminths - a condition called helminthiasis. - See link


Vermifuge in Spanish is Antihelmíntico
En medicina humana y veterinaria, un antihelmíntico es un medicamento utilizado en el tratamiento de las helmintiasis, es decir las infestaciones por vermes, helmintos o lombrices. Los antihelmínticos provocan la erradicación de las lombrices parásitas del cuerpo de manera rápida y completa, ya sea matándolos o incitando en ellos una conducta de huida que disminuye la carga parasitaria y sin dejar complicaciones de la infestación.2 Un sinónimo de antihelmíntico, ampliamente usado para los remedios tradicionales de este tipo, es vermífugo. - See link
