Anyone know? Past experiences?

Took it yesterday about 4pm, still have itching tonight and I would just like to know when it's going to disappear!

I was told 23-48hrs.

It could also be that you have scrathed you anal tissues and it is that which itches.

ovex does take a few days in my rather unfortunate experience - maybe 3 days until you can be sure the feckers are all dead and gone. It doesn't work with stomach cramps & eviction as suggested by dg (Pripsen does though) - ovex makes the worms unable to process glucose so they starve, which takes a bit of time.

NOt only that but you still have to be careful as the eggs will still be there for a couple of weeks.

Cheers guys, I have been very careful recently, washing and anti-baccing everything in sight

and I haven't scathed the anal tissue, I've somehow resisted the temptation to scratch!

I think I'll still take another tablet in 2 weeks to be sure however.

Many thanks

Apparently many people do it in their sleep without realising it.

I am sure you are just being paranoid though.
