I have an itchy arse, my Dh has an itchy arse and ds has an itchy arse! I have seen evidence of threadworms....yet my Dh is convinced that we have itchy arses from eating too much white bread. He keeps preaching to me that it's from the yeast in the bread.

Aibu to tell him he is talking utter nonsense and send him on the walk of shame to the chemist in the morning for vermox grin

I think you can actually get a itchy bum from yeast but it's much more likely to be worms so eliminate that possibility firstborn it has endocrine and go from there.

He's been consulting Dr Google hasn't he?

It is nonsense and you do all need to be wormed. It's no big deal grin

What evidence have you seen?

Hoppinggreen Mon 30-Nov-15 20:15:54

Eliminate that possibility first with medicine and go from there!!

jolly I pretty certain that I have seen the little fuckers saluting me from down the toilet hmm

Dh is refusing to let me look up his bum for confirmation.

Look at DC's bum when they're been tucked in bed for a while. If they have little white worms in the appropriate place it's a fair bet that you have them too!

Surely if the vertex Durante cure your itchy bums, then he has proof that he is tight. He should therefore have no problem with going to get some 'to eliminate your explanation' wink

Mmm, why don't you pop a garlic clove up his bum as a nice surprise next time you get jiggy.
Then see if he still has an itch?

In theory if you have a candida overgrowth happening in your digestive tract eating too much white bread, or brown bread for that matter, or any bread, or sugar, or fruit, or mushrooms, or alcohol, or just about anything that "feeds" the candida could contribute to an itchy bum, by contributing to the candida.

However, with a young child and all three of you with an itchy bum, it is highly likely it is threadworm!

We all had this earlier in the year. Strangely enough I first treated myself for intestinal thrush as I had been on several fierce antibiotics but when DH and the kids started complaining about their itchy arses, the penny dropped!

We did the course of treatment (a dose 2 weeks apart) and we are sans itch!

Get rid!

We all had to be treated last week yuck. My eldest dd told me she had an itchy bum so I had a look for a couple of minutes one night and one descended <boak>

Next day I asked my second daughter if she'd had an itchy bum and she said yes but only at night. No idea why she hadnt told me.

Anyway, I got us all the treatment and they are both much better now. Going to repeat it in six weeks too just incase anyone's happened to ingest an egg since confused

My husband never ever gets symptoms and the pharmacist says that doesn't mean you don't have them as some people don't.

It's most likely to be threadworms. Ovex from boots tomorrow and wash all bedding, pjs and underwear on 60 degree washes for two weeks at least.

Oh I hate the thought of the little buggers!! We got the for the very first time that I'm aware of this summer, took the meds and they disappeared. But obviously ds it bringing them back from school (ds finds it hilarious that he has infested us with them, he even calls his threadworm Charlie Threadworm)

Charlie also has a theme song shock

Get the Ovex out and wash all the bedlinen on a boil wash. And tell your DH you're going to shine your phone torch light on his bottom while he sleeps and check for the blighters. It works; I had to check DS1 not long ago and DH nearly vomited with disgust at the very thought.
