I just confirmed last night that my toddler and probably myself and everyone else here, has pinworms. I plan on persuing a natural method of treatment because we won't have any health insurance for 3 months. The problem is, My husband, son, and I live with my sister, her husband, and their 4 kids. While I have explained things, and and trying to get the family to adopt good hygeine habits, they won't! I am the only person that cleans a lot of the time, and one of the kids has a wiping problem. I am worried that we are going to be stuck with this until we move out. I know that every surface must be cleaned every day, and we have to wash bed linens and sheets as well. This is physically impossible to do on my own! Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated. I know it isn't pleasant, but will this seriously affect my LO until we can get out to a place where we can control our environment? I am a very worried momma...
