Sanjean, last year in August I started to notice occasional anal itching at night time. I would get up and go to the bathroom and look at my bum but I didnt see anything. One day I happen to be watching Oprah and Dr. Greene was on and he started talking about Pinworms. So I realized that was probably what I had. But I could not do anything about it because i was 8 months pregnant! So about two weeks after I had my child. I notice the itching again, so I decided to take Pin-X. After that I went from having the occasional night time itchng to having it everyday. Its like I stirred up the environment. The Pin-X didnt work and I next started trying natural herbs and Vermox. I just recently have started to see dead ones sometimes when I wipe. What I see is something that is very small but it doent look exactly like some pin pictures that are available. I think i have a heavy infection because I get up almost 4 times a night to wipe my bum because I can feel them moving. At night I try different creams back there but nothing has stopped them. Sorry for the graphic description! Sometimes I wonder if I have a tapeworm, because I am skinny. Can you please keep me posted on your results for seaking alternative medicine?
