PYRANTEL PAMOATE

READ THIS INSERT THOROUGHLY BEFORE TAKING THIS PRODUCT.

This brochure will tell you about pinworms and how to treat infections effectively with Pyrantel Pamoate. Many who have pinworms do not have symptoms. Nevertheless, many will experience itching in and around the rectal opening. The itching may be very annoying and continued scratching can cause an irritation in this area. The itching may be presented at night when sleeping. That is why restless sleep is sometimes a sign of pinworms, especially in children. It is important for you to realize that you should only treat with Pyrantel Pamoate if you have seen and identified the pinworms.

Pinworms look like tiny white threads. The female pinworm is about ½ long (the male pinworm is shorter). They live in the bowel. Usually, at night, the female travels to the rectal opening and lays eggs within the skin folds around the opening. This usually takes place within one to two hours after the child has been put to bed for the night. The sticky gelatin-like substance in which the eggs (they are too small to see) are deposited and the movement of the female pinworm may cause annoying itching and possibly restless sleep. By checking the rectal opening at this time, you can attempt to see the pinworm as described.

The pinworm eggs normally survive for as long as three weeks. In that time, the pinworm egg may hatch and the pinworm will travel back within the rectal opening into the bowel. The pinworm reaches maturity in the bowel within two to six weeks and the life cycle repeats itself.

Scratching will cause pinworm eggs to stick to the fingers. Reinfection will result if the fingers are placed in the mouth. The eggs, which are too small to see, contaminate whatever they come in contact with: bed clothes, underwear, toys, hands, and food touched by contaminated hands. Even eggs floating in the air can be swallowed and cause infection. Eggs deposited in the environment, as stated above, can survive for as long as three weeks. Pinworms are highly contagious. Even the cleanest and most careful people can get them.

After treatment with Pyrantel Pamoate, there are some rules to follow to try to prevent spreading to others and reinfection:

  • Wash hands and fingernails with soap often during the day, especially before eating and after using the toilet.
  • Wear tight underpants both day and night. Change them daily.
  • For several days after treatment, clean the bedroom floor by vacuuming or damp mopping. Avoid dry sweeping that may stir up dust.
  • After treatment, wash bed linens and night clothes (don't shake them).
  • Keep the toilet seats clean.
