yes, she is talking about vicks vapo-rub. The pinworms are white to off white, small-around 1/8th of an inch, and thick. You will know that this is not ear wax. I haven't even had ear wax for years, maybe this has been why. I get even smaller ones out too. I use to tell my family that my ears always itched terribly after I had cleaned them (but didn't get wax out).
I think I have many pinworms coz I have been doing this for over a year now and still getting some each morning. I read that if you put your pointer finger just inside your ears (enough to kinda plug them) and push toward your face-hold that position for a few minutes-making sure you can't hear outside noises-you will be able to hear the parasites moving, they don't like the pressure from your fingers, I feel them like it says, and I hear a kinda of dull thumping noise as I feel them moving. Press a little harder if you don't notice anything.
But mine must come right back when I stop coz I still get some dead ones out. It was interesting to try this and see that it was true for me. A happy thought, at least I am getting some out...heyjude
