| | Pin Worms-I'm terrified! It's been 1.5 Years
I am a 15 year old girl who has had pin worms for about a year and a half now. The first time I had them my entire stool was completely covered with these moving white worms. Since then, I have had five more recurring cases of them. I'm guessing they just never went away after the very first infection. The first time I had them, the doctor just called in a prescription for Vermox for me to take. I took both doses. The other times we have purchased an ineffective over-the-counter medication called Reese's Pin Worm Medication. I have been a vegetarian for five years, so I am wondering if this could have played a factor in me getting them. The first time I had them, I was able to see them in my vagina. Today, I noticed some crawling around in my pubic hair. I have started eating meat again, as of November. I have been taking black walnut pills, garlic pills, and potent acidopholous for four days now. We have also been washing my sheets daily. Can anyone please tell me what to do? Also, I have been begging my mom to not take me to the doctor, as I am afraid they will make me pull down my pants and look in that area. Can anyone please tell me what to expect when i go to the doctor tomorrow, ie. What questions/ possible procedures could take place. I would appreciate any responses before I go tomorrow afternoon. Thank you so much in advance for your help.
