1. Take one dose of an anti-worm medication. Your doctor will prescribe (or recommend an over-the-counter version of) an anti-worm medication. Some examples include Mebendazole, Pyrantel permeate, and Albendazole. You will be directed to take one dose of one of these medications (follow the specific instructions of your doctor) and then to wait two weeks. The way this medication works is that it kills off any adult worms. They are all eradicated, except for the eggs which will remain in your system.
2. Take another dose at the two week mark. After two weeks have passed, you will be directed to take one more dose of the same anti-worm medication. The purpose of this second dose is to kill any new worms that have formed as a result of the eggs. The two week timing is extremely important, as it catches the worms at just the right phase in their lifecycle so as to kill all of them without needing any further doses after this one.
3. Treat everyone in the household. Since threadworms are so easily passed from one person to another, your doctor will likely recommend that everyone in the household be treated with two doses of the anti-worm medication. It is better to be safe rather than sorry, and to prevent the hassle of someone in the household showing signs of an infection just after the initial person was cured.
4. Know that medication is your best bet. This is especially true if you are treating pinworm infections in children. Although pinworms can technically be treated with six weeks of very strict hygiene measures (because the lifecycle of the worm is six weeks), it is very challenging to adhere by these strict standards at home, particularly if children are involved. The benefit of medication is that it is extremely effective at clearing the infection in two weeks. Hygienic measures can then be used as a means to prevent re-occurrence or subsequent infections down the road.
