If you have experience or knowledge about pinworms, please read.

I have had pinworms since the last July. (The main culprit is bad meat.)
The initial infection was heavy enough to realize I had pinworms, and I was treated with medication. The next day, they were gone and I was ready to forget about the whole thing. I took the second dosage (even the third and the fourth just to be safe) but after a month or so, they came back. I was treated with different medications several times, but nothing worked.

Now the thing is, I have never felt anything like the itchiness of the initial infection. But I do get this tiny, tingly feeling down there, like a worm just moved. And I know it's not caused by a rash. It's a very unique, particular feeling, like something wet just slided. I read there are other people who are experiencing exactly the same thing: tingly sensation around the anus, some of the symptoms but no itching.

For the last six months I have felt the same thing over and over again. It continues on, subsides for a few days -probably due to my multiple attacks-, 2-3 days at least, 1 week the most, but right when I start rejoicing and celebrating, it starts again. What is the reason for this? Why don't I get intense itching if I keep reinfecting myself? - there were periods where I did nothing to fight them, and the infection did not intensify- I really need an explanation.

I eat everything I should during a pinworm infection (pumpkin seeds, garlic -there is not a day I don't eat at least 8 cloves of garlic-, spices -I never cook anything without adding my fav. spices, one of which is curry-, carrots). I became a hygiene freak, I wear masks and gloves in the toilet, and wash my hands with disinfectant, but they simply won't leave me.

I also have some of the symptoms like that weird mouth odour I had during the first infection, mouth problems, stomach pain, and weight loss. But none of these are intense enough to convince my parents I still have them.

I will have the scotch tape test done soon. But meanwhile, I'm searching for herbal treatments. I hear Clarkia is really good. Anyone ever used that and got good results? I have put all my hope in that product.

This is supposed to be a child disease. It's supposed to be treated with two dosage of any anti-pinworm meds out there. I don't understand it, and it's driving me mad. I'm absolutely horrified at the notion of being one of those people who say "I've had them for the last 30 years!". Please help.

If your source of infection was meat perhaps the worms were resistant to all the drugs that they give cattle these days, and hence resistant to whatever meds you took.

MMS will get rid of pinworms quite easily. Go to the Alternative Therapies on this form and you will find a subfourm called MMS. Read the first few posts that are marked with stickes, go to the links offered.

MMS is by far and away your easiest, cheapest solution that will be 100 percent effective. I would take it for at least two weeks and then repeat in two weeks. If they seem to go away but come back its because you did not hit them all and just need to take mms longer. MMS can be taken for a long time without concern.

Pinworms!

My kids got pinworms alot as young kids; many nights of checking their behinds
with a flashlight. Besides the oral medication for the whole family, I had to wash
their sheets, bedding, etc with the hottest water possible and high dryer heat.
We had no pets but pets can carry pinworms too, so should be checked by a Vet
and dewormed too if they have them and their bedding washed as well.
Re-infecting is so easy and a major pain to get rid of.
Good luck!

Thank you for the reply. I'll look into it. Do you have any knowledge on herbal parasite cleansers like Clarkia and Humaworm?

Thank you for the reply. I take all those precautions, I don't think I'm re-infecting myself. I mean if I were, wouldn't it be as bad as the initial infection? I just get these random (day and night) tingly sensations and some of the symptoms. When your kids got re-infected, was it always intense with unbearable itching? Or did they experience something similar to my case?

Here's a site with some good suggestions

http://www.ayushveda.com/dietfitness/home-remedies-for-pinworm/

Note they recommend coconut, so I would add that the virgin coconut oil would be good with carrots which is also good against them. Add some garlic, and I also think ginger is good for almost everything, they don't mention it though. Also cloves are good against parasites. You may have another parasite besides the pinworms. Cayenne is good for some things also.
