Our kids are exposed to so many things these days. Regardless of if it’s school season, or summer vacation, you can bet your kids will come home with a variety of things. Colds, flu, head lice, bumps and bruises, and more. When I say “and more” I am referring to things like pinworm infection. One might not give pinworm infection much thought, until your child brings it home. But, did you know that pinworm infection isn’t only brought home by your child? If you work around children you too can get pinworms, or even get it from your own child.
I remember back when my son was about 4 or 5, he started getting super restless and having issues sleeping and was complaining about an itchy bottom. I took him to the Dr and was sent home with a test for pinworm. Gladly that wasn’t the issue but yet I was freaked out. This was 20 years ago, before I knew anything on this subject and before one could find info on the “web” to help get treatment or diagnose things. So, I was a freaked out parent when my Dr told me my son might have worms. Ack!! YIKES!
Nowadays, it’s just another one of those things that parents should be aware of. I suggest that everyone have at hand, or know where to get, Reese’s Pinworm Medicine for such cases. Reese’s Pinworm Medicine costs less than any Rx treatment options (Albenza and Emverm). Up to 95% less. It is also doctor recommended, been treating pinworm since 1986, single dose effectiveness, and available in a 1oz and 2oz Family Pack sizes.
If you have ever had a child with pinworm or you yourself have had it, you know that the itch is crazy! Reese also offers Reese’s Pinworm Itch Relief Wipes. This is a newer product with 1% Pramoxine Hydrochloride anti-itch medication that provides itch relief while the pinworm medication is taking effect.
If you have not heard of pinworms I invite you to check out the additional resources so you can learn more about. This way, you can get a jump start on treating it if you or your child should end up infected.
I learned as a young parent to teach my son to always wash hands before eating, after eating, after going to the bathroom and not to itch “down there”, and if you do.. wash wash wash the hands. He is now 26, and washes his hands more than most adults I know! LOL! But, my husband and I are pretty germaphobic so we wash all the time too.
