How to remove pinworms in a child at home
Pinworms are perhaps the most common parasites that infect the children's body.
The body of pinworms reaches a length of up to 13 millimeters, has an styloid tail. Parasites live in the rectum. After the fertilization process, females crawl out of it (and this causes itching).
When scratching itchy places, the females die and their eggs stick to their hands (underwear, skin surrounding the anus). After 4 hours the larva can cause infection again (if it enters the intestine again).
Exile of parasites
If you suspect your child has pinworms, then be sure to consult a doctor. After passing the necessary tests, he will confirm or dissipate your concerns.Modern medicine has a sufficient set of tools that successfully fight with worms. The most common drugs in this regard.DekarisandVermox.
However, here it should be remembered that the antihelminthic drugs are very toxic, especially for the fragile body of the child. That is why we advise starting treatment with folk remedies.
Take 1 clove of garlic (you can 2 small), chop it, pour a glass of boiling water. Do this procedure in the evening. In the morning, strain the infusion and make an enema. And after an emptying of the intestines, after making a cleansing enema, redeem the child (wash the parasite's eggs from its skin).
Inflorescences of tansy (1 tablespoon) are poured boiling water (1/2 liter). The mixture is boiled for about 15 minutes. Cool, strain. Such an enema is done in the morning, and after it - a cleansing. Then - bathing.
Such treatment folk remedies will not cause approval in children (rather, a stormy protest), but to bring pinworms, you must be persistent.
At the same time, follow the basic rules:
- Every evening (before bedtime), put on a child's tight panties that are boiled and ironed in the morning (eggs will not be able to spread);
- Bed linen is also changed daily;
- Make sure that the child has shortly cut nails, and hands thoroughly washed before eating;
- Bathing every day is necessary (eggs are removed from the surface of the skin).
Chop a small onion, pour a glass of boiling water over it. After 12 hours, strain. Drink 3-4 days 0.5 cups (30 minutes before meals).
Two cups of boiling water pour 1 teaspoon of wormwood. Cool, then strain. Treatment for children - 1 tablespoon three times a day (20 minutes before meals).

- Treatment for worms should go through the whole family;
- If there are animals in the house (cats, dogs) - buy them antihelminthic drugs;
- Since pinworm eggs are transported with dust, daily wet cleaning of the room is obligatory;
