Here are my questions/concerns with my pinworm situation, any insight would be greatly appreciated. Ive been having a really hard time mentally with all this and i cant find any info that relates to my case
1. Is it possible to less contagious if you're not expiriencing itching? I know i must i have pinworms, i've seen two dead ones around my anus/genital area at different times within the past few weeks. Im worried because i went and visited some friends and slept on their couch for a week before i realized i had them but i wasnt itching down there at all while i was there, and i had caught a cold at the time so i was washing my hands a lot anyways trying not to spread germs. I put on clean underwear everday of course but i wore the same pajamas everynight... I'm really paranoid about them catching these nasty things, it would be humiliating and i would feel so terrible. I was sneezing a lot from my cold too hope that doesn't spread them.. I know i must've still had them while i was there because the day after i got back from visiting them is when i saw the first worm. i think ive had them and off them since december.
2. Due to other health issues i have i've already been on a diet that parasites dont thrive well of off, i was also already taking a tincture with wormwood and black walnut in it daily for the whole month of january. I think this must be why my itching is not severe and that i probably only have a minor infection? I had intense vaginal itching once around when i believe i first got infected in December but i knew nothing of parasites and just thought it was a yeast problem... it subsided after a few days with garlic treatment, only very slight itching since then, doesnt happen every night either. i believe they've been infecting me on and off through my bed and towels getting contaminated all the time i had no idea i had them. Really hoping a minor infection with good hygiene makes me less contagious... i really cant deal with the idea of infecting someone else. I have been living with my parents and sharing a bathroom and they havent gotten infected so that gives me hope
3. Im supposed to be moving in with these same friends very soon, and im not sure the worms are completely gone yet. Im taking second dose of albenza tomorrow.. is it not a good idea to move in yet? I plan on de contaminating every single item i bring into the house. Ive already had to post pone this move and really don't want to have to do that again. Ugh this is completely messing up my life right now, should be a happy time but because of these damn things im starting to get really depressed being so paranoid about it all the time...
Also i dont feel like listing everything ive been taking for the past two weeks as the list would get very long but ive been doing everything in my power to rid myself of them, along with albenza ive been on a very strict anti parasitic diet(even more strict then my usual diet) and tons of anti parasitic herbs, and extremely spicy foods almost everyday. I did notice what looked like a lot of die off in my stool in the beginning of my cleanse, but not anymore. But i swear i can still feel slight itching here and there, everytime i feel this i go check and nothing is there. Feel like im driving myself crazy over this! Not something you can really talk to anyone about either, makes it all the more difficult to deal with.
