    Dear 'me'

    You should not be embarassed to talk to your mum about this problem - I'm sure she would give you nothing but help and sympathy. Alternatively you must see a doctor - how old are you?? Don't be ashamed, aybody can suffer from this horrible problem (even your parents) and in fact it is quite possible that if you have them, they do too! Don't suffer in silence these things are horrible and you need help :cry:

      I used to be in your situation. I had them for months but I didn't tell anyone. It was horrible. Then, I told my mom and she got me medications and they worked!! Just tell your parents, and they will understand and help you.

    Threadworms can usually be treated very easily by simply taking one tablet. It is called Ovex and can be bought from any chemist.

    Don't be embarrassed ..... almost everyone has them at some time in their life.

    It is usually recommended that a second tablet is taken after two weeks to ensure the threadworms are completely cleared - your pharmacist will advise you.

    Also, your mum really should be told .... it's quite possible that she and other members of the family have them too and also need to be treated.

    In the meantime, no scratching and lots of handwashing.

    Good luck!! smile

    is there any other way of getting rid of them without taking medication like a home remedy or something!!?


    P.S- i went to hospital in 2006-7 and they said i have them and i had to get ovex tablets. [/b]

    I had these little blighters for years when I was a teenager and I was too embarrassed to tell my parents too. finally, when I left home I went to the pharmacist and asked for a Threadworm treatment. It was one tablet, and I was miraculously cured. i felt silly for having waited so long! i've been clear for 9 years now. Go and ask your pharmacist for the tablet now!

    You also need to wash your underwear, pyjamas and bedclothes on the same day you take the tablet (if you can't do this without your Mum being suspicious and you really don't want to tell her the truth, you might want to say you spilt a drink on them or something!) because the eggs can stay in the bedclothes for 2 weeks after.

    if the single treatment doesn't work, then you will need to tell you family so that everyone can be treated at once. Sometimes people have them without having any symptoms, so even if your family don't think they have threadworms, they shoudl still take the tablets. There are figures which suggest about 40% of people have them, so don't be embarrassed. You're being the sensible grown up one by telling them and getting treatment.

    So do tell your parents if you can, but i know how it feels if you just can't bring yourself to, so try one treatment yourself first if you prefer.

    good luck!
