In brief: Dont understand qs.

Pinworms die if the anal-oral cycle is broken--meaning if you do not itch and then put your fingers in your mouth.
wash your hands and be careful.there are very safe medications to treat them too.talk to your dr.

In brief: Sometimes

It is not unusual to have some residual itching in the week following pinworm treatment, if symptoms persist 7 days then one more treatment is warranted!
