Parahell, I am trying as we speak to get an accurate dia-gnosis. so far, the first test I got baack from Quest Diagnositics was negative. I requested to try again 3 more times. But its so hard to do this on myself. A GI doctor told me I had them when I said I had an anal itch, mostly at night, although I can have it other times now. Since his only answer for me was the Mebendozole, I am not going back to him. After rounds of Mebendozole (Vermox -same) I think it can diminish symtoms, but never cures it. Again, exrememe cleanliness in the home and myself. How I wish it could be something else and to not live being contagious of my family, (husband)!! and everything around me. constantly cleaning and covering my tracks to save my family the distress that I go through.
I feel movement, so if it's not pinworms, its still a worm and would be treated the same. RG at Humaworm named 3 other worms similiar, but I don't have the symtoms of those other worms. Now threadworms are most similiar, but I thought threadworms and pinworms were the same. seem to look the same, causing similiar symtoms...I don't know. Let us know how that new medication works for you.
