Q) Our whole family has been plagued

Q) Our whole family has been plaguedby threadworm for more than four years now. We have tried everything to no avail, and it's taking its toll on our overall wellbeing. We have had courses of wormwood, cloves, black walnut, garlic, raw carrot, apple and pumpkin seeds, Biocidin/grapefruit seed extract, probiotics, homeopathic Cina and Baryta Carb, Echinacea, zinc, copious handwashing, morning bottom-washing-the list goes on.We are somewhat limited as to what we can try by the age of our children, although the youngest is now two.My husband routinely uses over-the-counter mebendazole, following up two weeks later, but it does little more than stop the itching for a while. The only thing that seems to keep them at bay is garlic oil on the anus at night, but we would like to be rid of them altogether.

Can you help?-A.C. Oxon
