I've just discovered I've got worms! Shit the bed! How the hell have I got it? My bum is so itchy right now!

The eggs can become airborne and you can get them by just breathing in if you are in the wrong place at the wrong time! I used to get them from my kids often when they were younger in spite of following the whole linen/ towel washing wet dusting protocol!! As well as all of that and the Ovex tablets, eating pumpkin seeds and papaya kills them off. Hope you get rid of them quickly!

Thanks marv. Have taken some ovex. I'm horrified I could have inhaled eggs! 😱 Didn't sleep much last night and when I did I dreamed of worms in my carpet! 😂
