I was nearly sick when I changed Lani's nappy when she had them, they were everywhere and it was really horrid. I have a strong stomach for anything but that really was on my limit... :puke: :puke: :puke:

garlic... they dont like it eat lots sounds stupid but :oops: :oops: :oops: I got them when pregnant with dexter .... was staying with my sister and children we all got them :oops: :oops:

.... and even nastier and TMI

sudocrem or zinc and caster oil on your bum at night.... it draws them out :puke: :puke: :puke: and they get a bit stuck...

lots of washing do the bed clothes we brought dettol spray and sprayed door handles etc esp in the bathrooms...anti bac gel


it was recommended I didnt take anything trust me the midwifes and me wet our selves as I was mortified.... if you have them it takes 10-14 days to break the cycle

Ok Far TMI alert here

My boys have had them a few times. They complained of an itchy bum and couldn't setle at night, so I did the bum in the air, bright light thing and went 'fishing' for them with a bit of toilet paper I got them to try to open up as much as possible (without hurting them of course) "Go on trump in Mummy's face" usually works with my boys. :hohoho: Then I just wait until I see the worm and lift it out with a cotton bud (very gently) I can usually manage to get them out so they can sleep. Then treat us all with Ovex. Lily had them too last time. I found 2-4 tiny white worms in her nappy each morning (dead). :puke:
I do all the showers in the omorning, washing bedclothes stuff as well to break the cycle

Gosh, don't my kids sound delightful :oops: :hohoho:

Advice from the medical officer at school (I asked as a child at Ewan's childminder had worms) is that there is no need for treatment unless a family member gets them. You could treat Weef as a precaution if you like, but I wouldn't worry about you and Zarah unless one of the older two show symptoms. The side effects of the meds can be yucky too.

Exactly this ^^^^^.

I personally wouldn't treat my chidlren for worms as a precaution. If I remember correctly, the reason the old headlice treatment that we had when we were young (well, I say we, I mean those of us 28+) became ineffective was because people started using it as a precaution and the headlice became immune. Over use of medication helps the parasites to develop immunity to the treatments so they should only really be used if needed. :wink:
