pinworms : Gay & Black Glossary
- Wriggling intestinal parasites about an eighth of an inch long, species Enterobius
vermicularis. They cause rectal itching. You can get them non-sexually, but most
commonly by rimming or by blowing someone who has screwed someone else without washing
thoroughly afterward. They can be cured with a non-prescription drug such as Vanquin
(Pyrvinium), Pamovin (pyrvinium pamoate) or Combantrin (pyrantel pamoate). If anyone
gets them in a household, all should be treated to avoid reinfection.
