Once again as a 28 year old woman I have threadworms. I’m a cleaner and I do bite my nails but I religiously wash my hands. This is twice in the matter of a year and a half of just me having them.
Anyone else had them and not noticed their children or significant other having them!?
Absolutely sick of it.
(I work in a very good place but there are elderly adults and younger children)
You need to treat the whole family and clean bedding and towels.
You know this, but stop biting your nails!
I have, this is the second time in the space of a year and a half I’ve got them. As far as I know my daughter hasn’t. My other half hasnt (they all get wormed)
I know I need to, but I always wash my hands after work. I have read though that you can breath in the eggs and I work around towels and bedding 5 days a week xx
