So we just figured out last night that our 5 year old has pinworms. She had said her privates were itching the last 3 nights but I thought it was just that she wasn't wiping properly and she is really sensitive to acid and I thoought maybe she had just had too much juice. So last night I was going to check her before she went to sleep to make sure she didn't have any toilet paper or anything stuck in there and when I went to check there were 3 pinworms on her anus. This morning I went to the store and got the medicine and now I am trying to figure out the best way to get her toys cleaned. Any good advice for a stressed mama??? Also I have a 14 month old and she doesn't weigh enough to take the medicine. When I called and talked to the nurse she didn't seem concerned because she wasn't showing any signs of the pinworms and I had checked her as well. Anyone had to deal with this?
