Dad Believes he has Pinworms

We recently received a pretty graphic description from a dad about some parasitic worms he believes he and his kids are suffering from. He wrote that he and his 1 year old have white pin worms in their stool, and have also been finding red and black thread-like worms throughout the moist areas in the bathroom. He says his symptoms include feeling weak, tired, ill, throwing up, abdominal pain, coughing, and wheezing. Finally, he said that he coughed up a plug membrane containing pinworms after 5 months. He wrote that the emergency room workers didn’t believe him so he and his children have not yet been treated.

We are so sorry that this dad is suffering, and we hope he can find relief soon. Unfortunately, here at All About Worms we are unable to provide any medical advice or treatment suggestions. We encourage our reader to return to the emergency room or doctor’s office to have this problem addressed at once.

UPDATE! All About Worms has partnered with HealthLabs so that
you can get tested for parasites at a fully-qualified lab near you,
no doctor's visit required

To sum up, a concerned reader contacted us about pinworms. We are apologetic that he is in distress, but we cannot provide insight on this situation.
