Embarressed to ask Doctor? Related to Itching (very tmi)

So I go to a military hospital for all my medical needs. I dont always get the same doctor because they are so busy. I will be seeing a doctor I have never heard of before. I feel really embarressed to ask this doctor about my itching and possible pinworm infection. Any tips to keep me feeling less embarressed? Any of you guys ever feel embarressed to mention things to your doctor?

  • Im a medical assistant, and believe me, you have nothing to be embarrased about. Pinworms are normal, nothing to be embarrassed about. Its just a simple prescription, and you'd be in and out. Just say upfront that you think it might be pinworms so that they dont have to "investigate".

  • If its not pinworms, will the medication harm me?
