i had extreme itching around my anus for about a month but thought it could have been an infection or my diet as i eat lots of spicy foods but the itching got that bad i started to researchcauses of anal itching online and read that it could be pinworms i read that sticking tape to the anal area could show the worms i tried on a night when the itching was intense and to my horror was multiple thread like moving worms around 5mm long some a little larger that confirmed that i had pinworms i phoned my doctor the day after and they prescribed a single dose of mebendazole 100mg tablet but they came back in less than a week i returned to the doctor who gave me a single dose again this happened multiple times but they just kept coming back ive now had them for more than twelve month's and have taken countless doses of mebendazole that i have purchased from internet sites ive even tried uping the dose to 400mg mebendazole per week but it still has no effect that is the only drug that is on offer in the uk it seemed to work for a day or two but the itching returned a couple of days after taking it ive been looking for other ways to beat them and have found out that there are other drugs that could treat it but they are not licenced for use in the uk and doctors wont prescribe them i brought 2 doses of pyrantel pamoate off ebay but that too had no effect on them so i looked for other drugs i have recently managed to find albendazole 400 mg tablets from a asian supplier on ebay and managed to get 10 tablets delivered this week i have taken 1 and will continue to take them at 1 week apart im also taking msm 1 gram per day fresh garlic 1 bulb per day 50 ml apple cider vinegar does anyone have any tips or other types of herb supplements that might help ? im doing all the normal showering in morning changing underwear often cleaning hands room etc im at my wits end and worried as im having bleeding from the anus when the itching starts has anyone got rid of them ? im willing to try anything to get rid of them at this point please help
