I totally sympathises with the person who wrote about their living nightmare dealing with worms from the age of nine. My daughter is nearly eleven and for the past two years has suffered to with recurring worms. I too take care so that the family is protected and she is always being asked if she has any of the symptons by me so that i can deal with it straight away but to my deep sadness i only ever realise that she has threadworms when she wakes me at night to tell me that she has a sore vagina. Then after my daughter feeling totally gutted and me having to check which makes us both feel terrible but it has to be done to confirm that the threadworms are present, do i treat her and the family. We can't break the cycle either. The problem recurs every three to four months. My advice is to visit the doctors asap if you find them.
I feel that i let my daughter down each time she gets them. I feel heartbroken each time. I'm struggling to keep on top of the housework therefore when she gets them i am devastated even though i don't let the family know. I hope my one year will not suffer the same. The comments from that person were very useful and it's a shame you hid your identity as it's sometimes better to share and help others through theses things. The information provided on your website was excellent but it could have included some information for sufferers like my daughter and others in her situation.
