ive had them for years ans recently ate an entire pack of ciggarettes over maybe 10 days. i felt like i may have been starting to get relief, but it was so gross and sickening that i'm not anxious to try it again if that wasnt why my symptoms were down. has anyone successfully used this method? thanks

    Not recommended. You may have given yourself a dose of nicotine poisoning., thats why it was so gross.

      Pinworms can be hellish to clear,but as well as the recommended medications you have to be scrupulously clean with underwear,towels,sheets which should all be washed at 60 deg. at least. Everyone in your household should be treated as well. Keep your hands away from your mouth,keep your nails short,dont touch your anus. If its itchy try wearing cotton gloves at night so you cant scratch .

      Some people swear by raw garlic but you have to eat it every day for it to have any effect,and even then it may not clear.

      If you have had these for years then you are reinfecting yourself. Keep washing your hands several times a day.
