I am a 29 yr old mother of an 8 year old daughter and a 3 year old daughter as well. In Sep of 2017 my 3 year old was diagnosed with a yeast infection....after 10 day antibiotics and cream she still complained about it hurting when she went to the bathroom. Mind you I grew up in Detroit, MI and moved to FL 2 years ago. I have never in my life even heard of such a thing as pinworms. So a couple wks go on and I take her in for a second opinion. Thats when the doctor showed me she has pinworms. Im devastated. Im tired and im grossed out. I have been treating my family and I for pinworms since October and it is now January. It has been 5 days since the treatmemt, Albenza, and after i bathed my toddler i checked her anus and there seems to be an abundance of them in the entrance i dont think they were moving but Im such a wreck over all of this. Also every time I treat, they come out in my stool and clumps of them covered in discharge out of my vagina. Sorry for the gross details but this is just such a nightmare. My oldest goes back and forth to her dads house which he also has 2 young kids. He claims they dont have anything but this last treatment cycle i demanded he get the over the counter and treat so he complied. Pinworms has ruined my life to the fullest. For one i am so upset about the whole situation the constant cleaning and anxiety. The fact that Ive read some people have them for yrs or forever. The fact i truly dont know the exact "source." my sex life is over...i mean my boyfriend still want to but i dont want to spread anything back and forth. I have a history of overeacting when it comes to parasites...as my kids had scabies and lice so many close family memebers think i may be just doing the same as i did then. But the worst part is its not my imagination. They are there right around my daughters anus and its just miserable. I am so scared i will never get rid of them. Also my 3 yr old was just given antibiotics for a sinus infection. Is it true they can live in your face? I mean that alone is enough to just make me have a heart attack. Im really trying to hold it together for my girls but to be honest im crying while im typing this. I dont know if Ill ever be the same after this and I am praying to get rid of them. Please share with me any tips or experiences you think may help.
