I have had a problem with parasites for a month. I took Reese's pinworm med. and the worms came back. The eggs are in the vagina and I can feel them?
?? makes no sense: No one could feel pinworm eggs in the vagina. They are microscopic & no more an issue than the random germs that frequent the space.

If you truly think you can feel something there you need to have an exam. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
