We've used Cara PinAway: https://www.amazon.com/Pin-Awa.....=UTF8 but it ends up being a big struggle with my kids, they spit it out and I suspect never get a full dose ... so it's not surprising they get reinfected.

Is there any better tasting medicine out there? Any suppositories?

Call your pharmacy and see if they compound it into lollipops etc.

If you can get them to take pills it's better, but I understand that for some kids, and even adults, it's really hard.

Get a Vermox tablet, and crush it up into some granola and yogurt, or make it into a powder and mix into chocolate pudding.

I keep Vermox in the house at all times. You never know when those little beasties will show up, and it's best to treat them right away, instead of having to go hunt down some medication.

If you can get your dr to write a prescription, you can get vermox (mebendazole) for cheap from an online Canadian pharmacy. It’s chewable and has no taste. Just feels like eating dust sorta. Or you can crush and mix with food.
This is what I did for my family. The pin away did nothing for us.

As per my post above, I got a written prescription from my dr in NJ. You upload it to the Canadian pharmacy’s website and they ship it to you. 30 pills plus shipping cost me $25. I used northwest pharmacy but there are others.

And above all, you must make sure your kids are washing their hands properly. Also and dry all their stuff on hot water. Vacuum well in their bedrooms. But hand washing is most important. Soap and water, 15-20 seconds, after bathroom and before eating.

https://www.kiwidrug.com/search/vermox/ Buy a whole bunch, and treat everyone in the house at the same time. *

The tablets are small, and they dissolve in the mouth. They don't taste amazing, but they're not horrible. You can easily swallow them if you don't like the taste of slightly sweet chalk. Repeat the dose after 2 weeks.

*If you have pets, you can give them Vermox as well. You can give the pills to your pets by powdering them and then mixing them into peanut butter (for dogs) or tuna/wet food (for cats). You must treat your pets, because they can get pinworms and give them right back to you. They can also pick them up from outside and give them to everyone, so make sure you wash your hands well and often.

Surprised Whoa, that is an amazing price!

It's definitely more expensive if you are ordering from a place that doesn't require a prescription.

Not a great idea to order drugs from a place that doesn’t require a prescription. You don’t know where they are making their drugs and what quality it is. Could contain toxins etc

In general, yes.

In this case, the medicine ships out of New Zealand, where it is perfectly legal, regulated, and over the counter.
