To moved out for 6 weeks -itchy arse

Because everywhere I have read says eggs live for 6weeks so nothing is bastard safe, they live on toys, clothes, dust etc.

I have been harbouring worms for so ducking long that my health been so shit that had to had blood test done and I googled diagnosed my symptoms as having IBS to cervical cancer. The pelvic pain, diarrhoea, throwing up, bloating, craving shit and puking/shitting out anything healthy, tiredness, foul smelling gas etc.

This has been going on for ages and I'm thinking back to last few weeks of egg survival-

-Fetching bedding down as DS was ill
-Sleeps naked, and plonks arse on -sofa, jumps about

  • I like to shake bed sheets out

-We don't wash towels after every bath (we assigned our own colours)
-Dirty washing thrown down stairs
-Wet washing given a shake and hanged on airer or outside (kitchen/dinner open)
-Clean laundry put on my bed into piles
-My wardrobe doors being open whilst give duvet a shake
-The cupboards I tidied, did I wash my hands before filling washing machine.
The pants my kid likes to take off and throw in air to try catch.

I'm fucking doomed my house must be riddled with billions of worm eggs.

-The clothes I ordered and tried on in my bedroom, placed on bed before sending back (this one reason I always wash clothes) but what about the person who has to deal with returns.

We taken ovex, my pelvic pain has gone , I've stopped throwing up, I've washed fucking everything high temp, got antibacterial wipes, flora disinfectant, hoovered , thrown shit out, removed toothbrushes from bathroom. Stopped looking at my shit because I seeing worms even in my dinner! My asthma is not as bad due to not inhaling probably millions of fucking eggs.

I've had to pour myself a vodka because I found one on my steam iron obviously dead WTF!

I feel so dirty my OCD gone through the roof not helped by DS playing worm game and shouting out get the worm.

Take another dose of ovex in 7 days or whatever pharmacist recommends, and do your best with hygeine, then if its still a problem, repeat the whole double dosing and washing everything procedure. Teach hygeine and keeping pants on at same time. Of course your OCD is raging, but that's not going to help you here. Push through.


IHateUncleJamie · 01/07/2017 19:04

Yes, this: Teach hygeine and keeping pants on at same time.

Rigorous handwashing with soap after EVERY visit to the loo, cleaning under nails, no fingers in mouths, handwashing before eating - it's the only way. And no throwing pants around! πŸ’


IgnoreMeEveryOtherReindeerDoes · 01/07/2017 19:37

Have wrote on calendar about next dose. Bloody Ovex only selling tablets in packs of 4. Should say 'couples dose'. I always thought 1tablet and viola

I've gone back to using bars of soaps, had to show DS how it works! Hmm which means washing hands properly, should save money also as we go through so much hand soap dispenser, he so anal about hand washing too.

Pants are on have to admit told him so we don't get bugs in our bum as last time told him about worms he freak out and wouldn't poo but only he had them then. Preschool wash hands before lunch, infant school -play, scratch ur arse and eat lunch. Confused

FFS I don't live in shithole yet always something had flour mites not so long ago.

Hot wash everything 60 degrees and if you can at all try to tumble dry everything. A laundrette might have a really big dryer. How miserable, hope you are egg free soon!

Get yourself some diatomaceous earth x


IgnoreMeEveryOtherReindeerDoes · 01/07/2017 20:54

Thanks and I am @Barbie. Just as well not a local laundrette as my luck of late I probably come back with bed bugs.

@user I had to google search that, from what I briefly read more dead bugs killing of others and come across Scientology page about it that doesn't rate it. Can you explain how works,does,use as I've lost a week of my life googling symptoms,threadworms horror stories and cures

When DS has had them I bath him first thing to wash eggs away from overnight, keep his fingers nails short, clean bedding and towels and damp dust surfaces in his room.

Second dose a fortnight later pretty much ensures you're sorted too.

I always keep a pack in my first aid drawer now as DS is a thumb sucker and has had them a few times. So I'm less freaked out about it.

It is gross but it sounds like you're doing everything right. Pour yourself another vodka.


IHateUncleJamie · 01/07/2017 21:59

...and flour mites aren't your fault either; the buggers usually come in on the glue holding the paper flour packet closed. I check my flour as soon as I buy it, then decant it into those plastic cereal dispensers & chuck the packet. πŸ‘πŸ’


BillyDaveysDaughter · 01/07/2017 22:03

Shit dude, you poor thing. Hope it all clears up soon, nightmare.


IgnoreMeEveryOtherReindeerDoes · 02/07/2017 21:28

Thanks. I remember being laughed at because I put everything in plastic containers bar the bloody flour.

What can I do with oversized fluffy toy to big for washing machine or tumble dryer that used to reside on DS bed. Got for Xmas so can't throw it out yet.

Since taking ovex my sugar craving has stopped that I might lose that weight I've piled on feeding worm population in me

Seriously I agree with user, please get some diatomaceous earth, it does work and has additional benefits.


DontstepontheMomeRaths · 02/07/2017 21:46

I'd take it to a laundrette with large machines to wash.

How long do you think you had them for before realising?


IgnoreMeEveryOtherReindeerDoes · 03/07/2017 00:02

@time where do I get diatomaceous earth from and am I eating it or sprinkling it around home

@Dont I honestly don't know but long enough for it to effect my blood test results which I had done as illness I been having one after another and the IBS symptoms been going on for months but became more serve.

My sleep pattern was all over place that by time I did nod off I was too tired to scratch my arse probably.

It's grim because think about how they are so transferable and was sleeping downstairs other week on sofa bed as DS was so ill. I've stripped sofa & washed all covers,pillows even got carpet cleaner out
