In brief: Sure
The only symptoms caused by pinworms is rectal itching; so there are plenty of otc treatments to relieve this.
Pinworms are typically asymptomatic and harmless. The medicine to rid pinworms is easy and relatively non-toxic so i would do it to rid the pinworms. You would also need to wash linens, small clothes and household to prevent reinfection.
