In brief: Not in the U.S.

Vermox is the medication for pinworms.
In the U.S., vermox is by prescription only. I have heard that in some other countries, pinworm medication is over-the-counter. For other types of worms, blood parasites, and skin parasites, testing is needed and can be ordered by the doctor. Then treatment is with prescription medicines.

In brief: Yes

Many herbs can successfully treat parasites, including garlic, black walnut, gentian, quassia, and artemesia annua.
The one I have had the most success with is papaya seeds- about 2 tbsp of ground papaya seeds. Of course, which herbs to use depends on which parasites you have. See http://www.Umm.Edu/altmed/articles/intestinal-parasites-000097.Htm and http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=yrgluattmzq.
