    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    I can imagine this is very upsetting!

    Treatment alone does not kill threadworm eggs - good hygiene is the only way to prevent eggs from spreading and causing another infection. Click here for more information about additional ways to avoid threadworm:

    What is strict hygiene?

    Please let your doctor know that treatment up to this point has not worked for you. There might be other meds that you can try.

    Yours in health,
