i saw a 4 year old male with a 5 month history of pinworm infestation. he had been treated on two occasions with Mebendazole as follows 100mg tabs po bid for three days.
Mom was frustrated that the child continues to have infestation. He also had poor apetite with repeated abdominal pain. NO other family members had symptoms but no one else was treated.
Are there any suggestions for taking care of this child?
