I've never even heard of such. and would never dream of doing it either. The only worm I ever had was ring worm which isn't even a worm.maybe it's a weird question... do any of you deworm yourselves and your families? If so, how, and how often?
My son passed a roundworm when he was in diapers, and I got de-wormer from the doctor. My daughter passed a roundworm when she was 12 or 13, it scared her to death. That time the doctor said the whole family needed to take the prescription, because if one family member has worms, there's a good chance all do. This was back in the 70's. But I assure you, people DO get worms, especially if they live on the farm.revontulet said:I read somewhere that a lot of people have pinworms and don't even know it. It's extremly easy to pick up.
My neighbors children picked them up at school and so I dewormed us just in case. Just got a pill from our doctor.
As a side note legends tell that said:In the book "Seabiscuit", the jockeys took such pills to get rid of weight, then when they got so malnourished they were about to die, they'd have surgery to have the tapeworm removed. Yuck. By the way, the book "Seabiscuit" has a lot more to it than the movie does.
It's called Pin-X. Saw it at Wal-Mart today. They had it marked down @ $3.50, right next to the Equate pedia relief @.50 ea., and the Curad bandages @.35. ea. Didn't think I needed the worm treatment or the wound care, but did buy two bottles of the pedia relief, 50 cents ea. is good deal and expires 11/05.nostalgia said:I don't know the name of the medication but you can buy it in any store that sells drugs.
