my poor 5yo dd1 is experiencing very distressing vaginal itching , but only at night. no others symptoms. dr thinks it could be threadworms! i never knew that the little f*ckers could affect the fanjo, too.

anyone else had experience of this?

we have found no <ahem> actual evidence of worms, but are on the look out ...

yes, perfectly possible

they get everywhere the little blighters

you need to cut nails and wash all bedding
(also, when she wakes up in the morning, wipe her bits and bum clean because the worms come out and lay eggs in the night ewww)
