    I read your article about pinworms and used the prescribed method. Well after trying several medicines prescribed by a doctor ie Bioflor and Motilium and two days of agonizing pain for my 8 year old son this happend. About a minute or two after giving my son two dietary fiber tablets and 3 pieces of crashed garlic mixed with 2 teaspoons of honey he became almost hysteric with pain and convultions for 5 minutes then almost miraculously and abrubtly he became like new again. At one point I tought I really messed up a was taking him to a Hospital but everthing went back to normal as if nothing has ever happend. That except for the bad breath of course. Many thanks to our helpful site.
    regards John.

    Do pinworms cause you not to be able to gain weight?
    When I was younger I used to have a normal weight but at 6 yrs. old
    I got the pinworms and from there on I haven’t been able to gain weight, eventhough I eat alot.

    Hi Kaylie, did you see a Doctor yet about it? If not, please do. They will help you clear up the problem and will be able to advise you what to do and take to keep them away. All the best. Just remember, you are not alone. Many suffer from the same problem.

    My kids and I have had them for 5 months so far. I’ve cleaned the house, toys with soaps, steam cleaning, vacuuming and nothing works. They’ve taken vermox and albenza with no help. I’ve tried garlic tablets and pumpin seeds. They seem permanent. My dr’s act like I’m making it up that we still have them!
