PINWORMS: Symptoms, Photos, & Treatment

Hi Daisy ~

Pinworms are tiny white or ivory-colored thread-like worms, measuring 1/4-1/2" long.

Females crawl out of the anus at night, lay their microscopic eggs in the perianal area, & then die.  This activity can cause intense itching & irritation from scratching.

This highly contagious parasite is acquired by contaminated food, bedding, underwear, clothing, water, house dust, & human contact.

Each female lays over 15,000 eggs that are infective immediately or within a few hours.  The microscopic eggs become airborne & float everywhere. 

Sometimes the adults appear as tiny pieces of thread in the first morning stool, clinging to toilet paper, undergarments, or the perianal area.

If one person in a household has pinworms, it's common to find others infected as well. 

Even without symptoms, all household members should be treated (their treatment is for a shorter period; see protocol below for details).

Drug guides usually show low-dose, one-shot, or short-term plans.  But studies show high failure & reinfection rates with those methods. 

Also, forum members frequently complain about high failure rates w/those methods. 

The Mebendazole (Vermox) drug protocol, that I personally used myself, calls for a higher dosage (100 mg twice daily) for longer periods of time (7 days on, 7 days off, repeated for 2 or more cycles):

If Vermox doesn't cure your condition, then you might have a drug-resistant strain.  Suggest you review the Albendazole protocol, which is a broad-spectrum parasitic med:

Topical creams & ointments for the itchies, rashes, & creepy-crawling:

On-line drug pharmacies:,,, or 

Or check w/other Parasite Drug Forum members for sites they've used:

Hope this info helps.  Good luck in your parasite battles!
