Wow, thank you again for all this detailed experienced info. I am starting to try to do as much as I can, but it's difficult for me and I get sicker very easily. You mentioned oxygenation, I was just wondering how pinworms relate to oxygen. I sometimes take oxygen supplements and wonder if that is helping me or maybe hindering if they thrive in oxygenation?? You mentioned that they release gas when they die, does that mean if I get intestinal/rectal gas that could be a good symptom that they are dying? Somewhere else someone cautioned against using any ointments or oils on the anus, thinking that if the worms can't get out there, they will travel into other areas of the body (they mentioned the nose?) Thank you so much for your detailed help. I am working away at it!
