Hello
Pinworms would not typically infect the vagina.
How do you know this is pinworms, or why do you think so?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


I just assumed. I sent two stool samples to be tested but both came back negative. It is some type of worm as I have seen them on more that one occasion.

The only way to treat this is a sample...taken by your doctor and sent to the lab.

If it is pinworms, then oral medication is the treatment.

Albendazole specifically.
