Pin worms is a very common problem with kids. It can be tricky to diagnose and down right embarrassing for your kids. Once diagnosed, you need to clean everything in your child's room and all the undergarments that your child wears. Everyone needs to wash their hands after going to the bathroom and before eating. you child needs to not put his hands in his mouth. If they are nail biters, try to help them stop. the pin worm eggs are usually found in sandy areas like playgrounds. Treatment is usually very effective. you need to get a prescription for an anti-parasitic. send me a message if you have more specific questions. I'm a microbiologist.
