Is there a way to get rid of pinworm other than over the counter medicine

Pinworms, also referred to as seatworms or threadworms is transmitted through fecal-oral route. Using peeled garlic as a suppository proves beneficial. Going for a bath, immediately from bed is effective in preventing contamination of eggs. Washing the undergarments everyday is helpful. Avoid growing long nails. Allow the sun's rays to enter the bedroom, during the day, as the eggs are sunlight-sensitive.
