We have them, well I have them but if i do ds must surely! ive been feeling wriggling for weeks but thought i had piles thought id have a look last night with a mirror and there they were! asked ds this morning if hes itchy but he said no, neither is dh? surely its ds that brought them in from school?

Anyway i know i need OVEX for us but also have 1 year old what do i give him?

I know i need to clean clean clean but im worried i do it wrong/in wrong order. How often do i need to change all bedding? daily?

what about soft toys, ds sleeps with one about half his size it wouldnt fit in the machine? wha about electronic soft toy that the little one has?

advice greatly recieved, im panicking and feeling ill!

you need different stuff for the 1 year old - GP will be able to give a prescription - mine did one over the phone

Pharmacist at local health centre gave us ovex but woudnt give the little one prispen, he said that he dosnt like to at that age and that it would be self contained within the nappy, i hope he's right. The rest of us have all had first dose and ive cleaned and anti bac'd like never before! hopefully the horrible little things will be gone soon
