So I just found out that my daughters friend has pinworms and I’m definitely worried. We’ve had this friend over a lot the past few weeks. The girls played dress up, shared snack bags, etc. this friend even had an accident by our house and we lent her clothing. And now she has pinworms. Is there anything I can do to make sure we are clear?? Should I wash all her dress up clothing? Does it need to be hot water? Is there anything preventative I can do for my daughter (and the rest of my family!)?

I’ve never dealt with this before and I really would rather not have to!

This is the first time you're aware of it, but it's almost guaranteed that your dd has played with many friends with pinworms. It's that common. I honestly wouldn't do anything special unless she ends up with symptoms.

Lot's of your daughters friends have pinworms, I wouldnt worry about it. If she wakes up in the middle of the night screaming and itching- you'll have to deal with it, but seriously- dont stress.

I’m only this worried because they have been together a lot recently. The friends mother was in the hospital for like a week so this girl came over very frequently. I saw her itching herself once and she told me she had a mosquito bite. I sent her to wash her hands and then home to her father (they live next door) and she came back a few minutes later saying she was better....
Also she had an accident by us (as I said in op) and she borrowed underwear and clothing, so I’m worried on that account....

But the calmness of the responses is really helping!
