It perhaps also depends upon the complexity of the infection, it could take a day or more, however the single-dose treatment is often repeated after 2 weeks. This treats eggs that hatched since the first treatment.

The doc./pharmacist after examination of the infected could be a better person to advice, hope this helps?

Till the fourth of never. I've also found that I've had to school both my Dr and Nurse on pinworms, but to be fair one doesn't know until experiencing this awful affliction there is yet no cure I know of on this planet.

Are pinworms and ringworms the same and does pinworm medicine work for ringworms

Pinworms are a parasite, while ringworms are considered a fungus as far as I know. I don't know anything that is cured by "pinworm medicine" - certainly not pinworms which are generally systemic throughout the entire body, easily passing through the skin barrier, the venous system, as well as the internal organs, and can easily be seen by the thousands within ten seconds when coaxed to the skin surface with a warm moist cloth, especially after administering of opioids, especially the lips, chin, and the areas between the breast and underarms where the skin is most easily able for the parasites to cross, due to it's suppleness.
