I see no hysteria in having an 8 year old diagnosed and treated by a professional. Speaking for myself, I would never assume that my child has worms and attempt Home treatment. I donít even self-treat my dogs. 🤷*♀️

My suggestion is that you take your child to see a medical professional. However, here is a link to an OTC medication for pinworms:

OP does not know what type of worms this kid has, nor is she likely to be able to diagnose the child.

Don't give medical advice on a post.

Ask your pharmacist which OTC brand he/she recommends.

Yes, and it's still done that way. Most doctors would say get an OTC ... only come in if that doesn't work.

And the child mortality rate was much higher.

Hope to hear back from the OP. All to often posters who want advice, don`t come back to let us know how they made out with their problem.

The hysteria really is comical. I remember my mother saying all of us (brothers and sisters) had worms as kids. I suppose that is shocking to people that never played outside.

I recommend that the OP consult her pediatrician but many people are easily treated without going to a doctor.

Also, this is the 'health and wellness' forum. I think everyone knows that they should consult a physician for most healthcare decisions. I thought this forum was for thoughtful discussion but the attacks on many posters are absolutely ridiculous.
