In the past 2-3 years (slightly less), my daughter has aquired pinworms approx. ten times:mad:. She is treated with a single dose of Vermox and they go away... a few months later, they are back:eek: I wash EVERYTHING twice! I keep my daughters nails short, send her to school with hand sanitizer, tell her not to share food or put hands in mouth etc... My daughter is the only one who gets them- my husband, myself (had them 1X as a child) and my son (7) have never suffered from any of the symptoms. ... and by now I am nearing expertise on these little #?$@@s!
My question is, should I go ahead and treat the whole family again even though we are all asymptomatic? The last thing I want is for us to build up an immunity to the Vermox:rolleyes:
I also notic my daughter does not get worms during the summer months when away from her school mates. She has only been back at school for 3 days but visited her best friend for a few days at her cottage approx 3 weeks ago. Does 3 weeks sound about right for infection to show?:confused:
Thank you in advance...if anyone can help or share a similar experience.
