I was wondering if anyone had any more suggestions on how to stop the night time itch with pinworms. I have been inserting a garlic clove at night, along with creams but i don't want to damage my anus. I use vaseline, so it does go in easy. Is that still the best method? I just want to get a good nights sleep and not be woken up. thanks,
I just started the ParaGone a day ago, and I think tomarrow, I will go to full strength. I am taking that along with a colon cleanse, and a very good probiotic. I am praying this works. The doctors have no clue what we go through. They just think the drugs should work, but they don't.
I have used vaseline on the buttocks which works both to kill them and stop the itching. The pinworms come out at night to spread their eggs then return. The vaseline makes them...get stuck and not go back supposedly. It also helps with the itching. Make sure to change pjs/underewear and wash every morning - no reusing pjs during this time. This helps to give something do conquer the issue while you are waiting for the parasite cleanse to work. Some have said the vaseline alone done religiously can kill off the pinworms without drugs. I've always used the combo.
yes, I change underwear a bunch of times during the day, clean a lot, and all nightclothes/sheets are clean. Thank you for the vaseline tip. I wasn't really sure. Someone on here said it was toxic, so I was only using it to make the garlic insertion easier.
Have you been tested absolutely positive for enterobius vermicularis? This is more important than you think, because there are other things which can cause chronic itch of the anal region. If pinworm, you should be able to find them without a problem. They are visible to the naked eye. A magnifying glass can help, but they can be found. You could use "clear wrap" wipe the area during itch, especially after falling asleep, then hold the wrap up to the light, and try to observe small movements.
Well, this has been the whole problem. The doctors don't have micropscopes in their offices, and none will look at my tape samples. I have called the gyno, who won't deal with pinworms, reffering me back to the GI. So, today, I am getting a microscope from my school so I can see for myself. The GI doctor said it is definately pinworms because of the night itch. But he has nothing left to tell me except, use the creams...well, that doens't help. The colo-rectal doctor said it is not pinworms, because I would have responded to the round of Mebendozole that I had just been on. But I don't think she has a clue. She says it's prutitus ani, and wants to rule out an allergy. That has left me in agony and I am trying to find the hard evidence myself. This is not an allergy. I haven't seen anything in my stool, but I am pretty sure I see stuff on the tape. I've seen spots (like eggs maybe) some are curly kind of. Jagged edges? Then I've sen long straight lines, ranging from white to clear in color. Since they are stuck to tape, I can't see movement. In any case, I'm taking Paragone, with colon cleanse, and probiotic. I'm on day 3 now. I went for full strengh this morning. I will try the plastic wrap technique now, as you said. Seeing the movement will be a key identifyer.
I sort of concur with the doc about the mebendazole, because it usually works with pinworm very well in most people.
I have a problem with itch there as well, going on years. It affects me at night, and in daytime as well. It is worse after having a bowel movement.
My investigation shows it is a small protozoan parasite, impossible to identify unless seen previously in context with known isolation of the parasite from oocysts. They are as small as bacteria.
Also, there can be yeast\fungi connected to it.
The itch is similar to allergy reaction, due to antigenic stimulation of nerve-rich tissue in the area. Shroom
U can go to a local drug store (Walgreens , cvs etc..) they sell pinworm medicine. It's literally called pinworm medicine. It's on the shelf around the lice treatment and things like that. My children have gone thru this numerous time cause they can't keep their hands out their mouth but its very effective !!!! Only takes one dose to take care if the issue and its orally taken
You can get Now brand gelcaps online or in the health food stores. The gelcaps complete disintegrate in a minute or two once they are in you. I looked up "vermifuge" in the aromatherapy book. I made a list of every essential oil that was listed. I bought as many of them that I could find. I mix and match them according to smell, mix with olive oil so they are not too strong, put in caps and insert. You can feel the worm wigging and trying to run away when the cap breaks. It will stop the itch. Just put a capsule in before you go to bed. Makes poop smell good next morning too.
I buy Now brand Gel Caps. Yes they are empty. For anal, I get 000, the largest size. I have a book on aromatherapy. It has an index. I looked up "vermifuge" in the index and made a list of all the oils recommended. I purchased as many of them as I could find. I mix and match the oils. Sometimes I use nutmeg, anise, cloves and things like that. Sometimes I use things like garlic, thyme, rosemary, etc. Sometimes I mix thuja, eucalyptus, tea tree, etc. I mix things that seem like they go together. Sometimes I just mix a bunch of them together. I rotate "formulas" just in case resistance is a real concern, which I doubt.
I had severe symptoms of pinworms 2 weeks ago and theyíve subsided.
My symptoms were not just itchy rectum but of something crawling in my anus.
Iíve read thatís when they lay eggs, at night.
I started an anti-pinworm diet,
I eat these foods in addition to what I normally eat,
Pineapple, pomegranates, papaya and papaya seeds, thyme, raw garlic, carrots, carrot juice,
I washed all my sheets, wash hair daily.
I hear you have to wash everything because the eggs are everywhere and you inhale them.
I did a carrot juice enema, I juiced carrots, took the pulp, bought an enema/douche re-usable bag from drug store, put carrot juice in the bag, did an enema, (carrot juice kills pinworms)
I felt things crawling up into my intestines during the enema so I drank carrot juice too as if to have it on both ends, in my rectum and through my digestive system.
I held the enema for 15 minutes oh, lots of things came out, I didnít see pinworms though but
Since then, no itchy rectum like before at night I do feel something is still there but definitely not like before.
The only way to find out is to go to a doctor, which I shall do and I'll update.
I also eat cloves to kill the eggs because if I don't then the eggs will hatch and the cycle will start all over again.
I eat a pineapple a day.
I buy one fresh whole pineapple and chop it up, eat it before and after meals.
That made me lose weight, probably because of the enzymes in the pineapple, my normally bloated belly is actually flat.
I did pure cinnamon powder in water and then felt nauseated, I keep doing it because I feel that it kills the pinworms too.
My body odor smells really good since the cinnamon powder and my digestion has improved too.
All I need to do is get a doctor to confirm that I don't have them anymore.
I'm starting paragone tonight though just to be sure. but my symptoms are pretty much gone.
Hey, I have used graviola, google it, for pinworms ever since we got our dog. We live in the back of some woods in South Carolina. The graviola always works, along with several other immune boosting ingredients from the graviola tree. It is inexpensive, but I believe it is going to be MORE expensive as people catch on to it's cancer fighting properties.
Somebody, anybody; HELP ME!!!!o.k., I never thought I'd live my life cleaning all the time, and now, I have some kind of parasite, and have pulled 3 mites -black with white wings, out of my nose. I have been like some crazy nurse, having to wash all my clothes and bagging all the laundry, and some how, they infested the bed. Now, I have made an upcoming appointment at the Center for Infectious disease control. They gather around the anus and give you the chiggers all night long. I have been using borax and ammonia in hot water, because the itching comes back every other night. Plastic on the mattress helps. It may be a bird parasite, a bird or rodent house infestation. I would not wish this on my worst enemy. We have had house mice run up and over the high fence in our yard and run into our sliding glass door. I am doing the Parastroy cleanse and the graviola, and they hate menthol, so Ben-gay and vicks vapor rub in the bungy hole help alot. I also see the eggs of these parasites on the furniture, walls, doors, the cars, tables, I feel pretty defeated...somebody write me~~~!!!!!!
There's loads of people who live with pinworms an don't get any symtoms no itch nothing. They don't even know they have them an I think that's because there not being hygeneic, let me explain the way I see it is if you don't wash your hands after you've been to the toilet and scrub nails an dont do all the things you would normally do to prevent them they'll have enough eggs to repopulate them all an they won't need to go down to your anus to make you itch an then you stratch an then the eggs get under your fingernails an the lifecycle starts again but what if we could get rid of the itching just by doing this but they won't need to itch they already have enough eggs. I thought this becuase when I was about 12 i never washed my hands after I'd been to the toilet I knew I had pinworms but they never itche'd me or bothered me but when I started washing my hands after I'd been to the toilet and being very very clean when I was 14 they drove me crazy itching all day and all night so my theory is if we don't wash our hands after the toilet an wash our beds every day they won't itch ? It might not be right but could it work ?
Oh lord god help me! I have pinworm too! Last niht I was fine, its the morning and its itching SO bad! I tried vasaline and taking a shower, those dont work. Last time I had pinworm, I had to go to the ER.
