Helpful tips to prevent re-infection

  • Treat the whole family at the same time.
  • Shower rather than take a bath for several days after treatment to wash any remaining eggs away from the anal region.
  • Children’s clothing and bed linen should be washed in hot water, which kills any eggs.
  • Do not shake or flick the bed clothes and linen when removing them for washing.
  • Disinfect common living areas such as bathrooms, showers and toilet seats.
  • Encourage children to wash their hands with soap and water, especially after using the toilet and before meals.
  • Keep fingernails short and clean.
  • Discourage finger sucking.
