I found out I had pinworms over a month ago, though there was no telling how long I had them before I found out. Anyway, the day I saw the worms I called my mom completely freaking out. I mean, who wouldn't if they saw a teeny, skinny WIGGLING white worm in their business? Gross, I know. Anyway, she's friends with a nurse and she called her and they figured out it was pinworms. I found pictures of them, and sure enough, that's what they were, plus my symptoms matched- itchy rectum, constipation and diarrea, etc. So, I got some of Reese's Pinworm Medication and took the dosage I was supposed to take. The symptoms got better. About 4 weeks later, I realized I was supposed to take the medicine again (in 2-3 weeks) to make sure infection was cleared up. So, I used some Pin-X to hopefully wipe them out. Well, now, a 2-3 weeks since taking the Pin-X, the symptoms are appearing again, and today I had the wonderful surprise of seeing yet another live worm. Ugh. Disgusting. I need help! Should I take more medicine? Should I just go see a doctor so maybe they can give me stronger meds? I've heard that epsom salt can rid you of intestinal worms, but I don't know. If you have any clue of what to do, PLEASE HELP ME!! I'm sick of the alternating constipation and diarrea, the itchy butt thing and most of all, ACTUALLY SEEING THE NASTY LITTLE THINGS IN YOUR BUSSINESS SQUIGGLING AROUND... ugh. It's literally all I can think about. Please, please, help. It really sucks.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
