Lungworms in White's Tree Frogs...

So I have a couple of White's tree frogs that likely have lungworms. Gasping for air, shedding excessively, lighter green spots on the green frog and "bruises" on the brown frog. Also...saw the worms being "coughed" up. Being short of money at the moment, any home-cures known? Would I have to worry about dead lungworms clogging up the lungs and killing the frogs afterall?
I have another white's tree frog that hasn't showed signs yet, but being the brother of one of them, it's highly likely that he has them, as well.

Would I have to worry about my peacock tree frog that is not within contact (separate cage) of the white's tree frogs? How do I give her a preventative (or treatment if she does have them)?

Would I have to worry about my crested geckos? (Again in separate cages from the white's tree frogs and haven't been in contact.)

How are lungworms transmitted?
