Pinworm is a type of worm that can be seen in the colon, female pinworms can exceed 10 mm and male pinworms can exceed 3 mm. These type of worm can be seen nearly at all ages but it happens mostly between 5-14 years old. Pinworm has some certain reason to grow up or grow out of control and the biggest reason is hygiene problems. So the first step to remove pinworms is washing hands frequently.
Even if you wash your hands frequently, there are some certain areas that you can’t reach; nails. Nail biting is one of the worst habits and the main reason for many hygiene problems. Pinworms can easily infect other people so even if there is only one person with poor hygiene in the family, the other members are in danger too.
Pinworms can also contaminate bed and underwear with their eggs and these eggs can survive nearly 2-3 weeks at the room temperature. Since lack of hygiene is the main reason, the cure can prevent pinworms to some extent; mostly it is up to you.
Many people neglect bed hygiene but sheet and bedclothes must be washed weekly. Scratching infested areas also cause eggs to get trapped under your nails, and when you scratch somewhere else, they contaminate more areas of your body.
