Remember that pinworms are quite common among kids and aren't harmful. If you are having persistent symptoms anal pain, abdominal pain, blood in stool, or rectal bleedingbe sure to seek medical care immediately. Never stop taking a prescribed medication unless advised to do so by your GP or other qualified healthcare professional responsible for your care. In most cases, simple treatment measures provide some relief within one week and cure the problem totally within one month.
