Saturday morning I finally got to wash my 2 yo DS's cloth diapers. It's been a bad week, so they sat for 3 days. Yes, ick. As I opened the (dry pail) lid, a fruit fly flew out. So I get half way through the pail and I see many little worms on 2 of the diapers. I am POSITIVE I would have noticed that when I changed him. Of course I freak out, call the doctor and rush him there because when I describe it to the receptionist she immediately says "pin worms". It was not our regular doc -- he looks at DS's diaper rash (which is common) and says it is pin worms. I did take a sample in on a liner and he said "I saw the critters" and says I need to do better washing hands, etc. So, he gives the whole family Vermox (which I can't take because I'm pg). DH, DS, and DD all had a dose Saturday.
Yesterday I have a breakdown trying to disinfect my house from the thousands of eggs that are covering everything. But no one has any symptoms of nighttime itching and I've checked DD (easier to check her) twice at night and don't see a thing. Plus, we don't have air conditioning and it can get warm where the pail is kept. I called the doctor this a.m. and asked if it could possibly be fly larvae, not pin worms. The nurse that called back was pretty dismissive and said "There is no way it is anything BUT pin worms".
Anyone BTDT? What do you wise mamas think? What would you do -- assume it is pin worms and "take precautions" for the next 4-6 weeks? Thanks for reading this long, disgusting post. :(
