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:

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,
