Aside from the itch, what are some less common symptoms in children with pinworms?

Most have no sx. If it wasn't for the itch & the difficulty these kids have trying to sleep, we wouldn't need to treat this at all. Old wives tales have you believe the kids grind their teeth but that is bull. The allergic reaction that some kids get to the oily material the eggs are laid in is the basic problem. Short term help using a cold wash to remove the oil & soothing creams can help baby rest.Rx takes time.
