Stomach Worm

I have been suffering from stomach worms for past 6 years. I have consulted several doctors over the years and taken several medicines but all in vain because the problem still persists. I feel itching around my anus region and as a result of this problem I am facing certain health symptoms like physical weakness etc.

Wash in the morning. Because pinworms lay their eggs at night,
washing the anal area in the morning can help reduce the
number of  eggs on your body. Showering may help
avoid possible recontamination in bath water.
Change underwear and bed linen daily. This helps remove eggs.
Launder in hot water. Wash bedsheets, nightclothes, underwear,
washcloths and towels in hot water to help kill  eggs.
Dry on high heat.
Don't scratch. Avoid scratching the anal area
Wash your hands. To reduce your risk of getting or spreading an
infection, wash your hands thoroughly after having a bowel
movement or changing a diaper and before eating...fallow above with specific treatment prescribed by your doctors
