Pinworms are actually very common and they are tiny worms that live in your intestinal tract and they are SUPER itchy and lay eggs on your anal cavity creating a very very bad irritating itch. Its gross to think about but most people get it at least once in their lives. Usually when a child.

i had them when i was like 15. the doctor said i most likely got them from watching my neighbors kids and picking up their bikes and other toys outside and not washing my hands.

i called my neighbor, who called her doctor and they just gave all of them meds.

thats really all i can remember about it.

The Pin X will work, it just needs a few days to kill all the worms and eggs. Be sure to do the follow up dose in 2 weeks and to treat everyone in the family, even those without symptoms. It'll be fine. It's very common.

Did you have to tape your butt to check for them?

They are super common. If you don't see an improvement by Monday call the doc again. Less itching is a good sign they're going away. And according to this site you should repeat the pin x after 2 weeks
