After taking the medication, make sure you vacuum all cloth surfaces like chairs and mattresses, wash all the bedding and any laundry the entire family wears up through that day. Yes, do this for the whole house and the whole family because pin worms are easily spread from person to person. When I was a kid, my sister and I both had them and it sucked. At that time there was no OTC medicine, we had to go to the Dr to confirm it first and then get our prescription where everyone in the family had to take one little pill. But the most important part is treating the chairs, couches, carpets, bedding just by vacuuming well.
