I diagnosed myself with threadworms a couple weeks ago now. I was never extremely itchy, I sleep just fine etc. But I would feel a bit of wiggling around the anus once to twice a day. I looked at my stool and I could see strings of "something" and this was a theme throughout many bowel movements...Although, they were not white nor moving (I don't think)
I took Pyrantel Pamoate last Tuesday and I also went to the doctor (NOT helpful at all) and she perscribed me with Vermox.
I had a cleaning company come in and clean my whole condo top to bottom. I wash my sheets every 1-2 days. Undies/pants in boiling water everyday.
It has really taken a mental toll on me. I am constantly thinking of worms and the fear that there may be an egg floating about waiting for me to ingest it. My hands are literally raw from all the hand washing.
I guess I just wanted some insight. I still see these "string things" in my bowel movement that when assesed closely do look like worms but more transparent.. and they are not moving. So suppose they are dead, how long until I stop seeing these in my bowel movements?
I will definetley repeat both Vermox and Pyrantel Pamoate in the two weeks time for good measure.
I am going away for Christmas and I would like to have some advice as it is really consuming my life at the moment and I don't know how to cope with it.
Any advice helps or stories of own experience.
PS - I have also consumed garlic, apple cider vinegar and pumpkin seeds. Sugar has also been extreeeemley reduced in my diet.
