This could be a serious problem. Any infection left untreated has the potential to seriously damage your immune system, the consequences for this can be broad and may become potentially life threatening. Over the counter pinworm teatment won't help you. I is not strong enough to cure your infection, thus the bug has come back even stronger. Now they are resistant to that medication. You must seek medical help. If you are without insurance, go to a free clinic. The longer you wait, the hard it will be to treat, possibly even with treatment, this infection has already caused permant damage.

Medical Tape did it for me...well, it appears to be working thus far...
I had it for months, tried different medicines, tried different diets, disinfected myself and my house constantly until I felt I was going insane.  I finally read somewhere that they come out to lay eggs because they need oxygen...and it got me thinking.  OXYGEN!  They can go days without food, and are resistant to medication, and are retroinfecting me, but they can't reporduce without access to AIR!  So, I found the perfect medical tape - not too sticky, very flexible, and thick enough they couldn't possibly get through.  At first, I wore it for a few days (replacing every time I used the washroom of course), then only evenings and overnight.  Being a woman, I'm already used to pads, tampons, etc., so a little piece of tape was no problem - I didn't even notice it.  I finally feel worm free!  And, if I even think I feel the slightest tickle, the tape goes back on.  I am sleeping peacefully and my mind finally feels at ease.  Hope this helps you too :)

U need 2 get 2 an Er or urgent care, or PCP for treatment, it only takes a single chewable pill to get rid of them tere is otc med. called Pin X or Weems single dose tastes like caramel, should clear it right up, it's more embarrasing then deadly and anyone can get them, rich, poor, thet are not choosy. U get them from ingesting an egg from school. outside pop.
