This is very hard for me as I am asking for assistance in other parents that have possibly dealt with the same situations that may have advice or a positive outlook for me as this is stressing my family out to the extreme...
My daughter is turning 7 soon and she is grade 1...about a month ago we discovered that she had pin worms..I also have a 5 year old a 13 year old and my self in the home...The other 3 of us have no symptoms...After we learned she had them (which I seen 1 down by her anus) we went and got an over the counter mediation that we all took..then it stated that she needed another dose 2 weeks later which we all took again...then about 2 weeks later she got it back again...I panicaked and took her to the hospital (it was a long weekend and I knew it would be days before we could get into see our family doctor) and I got a written perscription...She has taken one dose and wii recieve a second dose this sunday...the other 3 of us are just taking the over the counter meds along with her...she complained on an itchy bum again tonight, I went in after she was sleeping tonight to check, and thought I may of seen something but Im not certain, I just may be paranoid....I will continue on checking more again....I am just wondering if anyone has had these issues and if you could give me direction....Has any one had re occuring pin worms in there childern? Or if you have any advice or insight that would be greatly appreciated..thank you so much
ps...our family are clean freaks and I am extremly clean and we practise heavy hand washing always
