How: Many times were you treated for. We’re close house contact also treated. Pinworm is very infectious . Reinfection is common if entire house hold is not treated. Treatment is usually effective but does not kill the eggs. So treatment should be repeated in 2 weeks to kill the hatched eggs. Hand washing and using hot water to launder clothes and underwear
