  • You'll need to go to the doctor for that one. In the meantime, witch hazel can help relieve the itch. Keep fingernails (yours too) trimmed short to prevent eggs from hiding out underneath them and be extra vigilant about hygiene.

  • Pin-x, you can buy it at the pharmacy, I had pinworms while pregnant, not fun. You can either call in & get a prescription for it or just go buy it. For 2 years of age, be sure to do just half a tablet & follow guidelines. Also, let your lo shower often & make it fun to relieve some of the itch without itching. Constant washing of the hands and be sure to avoid hands to mouth, I used to bite my nails ALL of the time so that's more than likely why I got it
