Pinworms?

Has your child had them? What age and how were they treated?

Dr today said my 19 month old could take a pill, but I read that they don't give the meds to children under 2, they use powder. Thanks for any input!

  • Kids get pinworms because they put their fingers in their mouths. My daughter had them and I am sure that most kids get them at some point. If your doctor believes it is safe for your child to take the medication, then check with the doctor to see if you can crush the pill.
