    This may sound weird, but an old custom is the rubbing of olive oil around (not inside) the area that itches , this is what my mother did. You can use a piece of toilet paper with olive oil on it and wipe with it.

    That’s because all the kids stayed away from her with all that garlic:)

    Break garlic, but don’t cut with metal knife, and rub in that area. Leave pieces if applicable (diaper). On top of that take the prescribed medicine.

    I once heard on the Arthur Frummer travel show that there is a vitamin to take that will keep mosquitoes away. I forgot which one. Does anyone know of this?

    Make sure your other kids don’t have it and are reinfecting this child.

    Kyolic, taken orally, works for my kids. You need to give it for a couple of days.

    Vermox is no longer marketed in the US but it can be imported from overseas where they make generics. Ask your doctor further but do a search for Mebex which is made by Cipla in India. The website Alldaychemist carries it.

    Stop with the silly bickering whether Vermox or Albenza. For s/o who claims to be a nurse and working in a Doc’s office should know they might Not be the same drug, but they are the same class and one is Not better than the other.

    CRS -the reason it’s hard to get rid of pinworms is simply because of mouth to backside cycle. The kid scratches and picks up more eggs and eats them. My ex-wife used to put on gloves and pull out the worms at nite, but you don’t need to do that. The meds Vermox or Albenza kills the worm, but this doesn’t solve the prob.

    You must keep the kid’s nails very short and try to cover the hands at nite. Wash your kid’s hands and the backside with soap often. Put a glob of vaseline on the backside, esp. at nite. This diminishes the itching and makes it unlikely for the kid to pick up more eggs. You’ll still need to take the Meds to kill the worms as long as you have the actual worms.

    if Vermox is only be prescription, then ask for Ovex. Same stuff but available without prescription.

    Pinworms often leave the body at night and then re-enter. You can have your child sleep with some scotch tape or duct tape covering the affected area. The worms will get stuck and not be able to re-enter. This won’t cure it, but it will definitely help stop them from proliferating.
