CLEVELAND — Reese Pharmaceutical Co. has expanded its product lineup with Reese’s Pinworm Itch Relief Wipes, a new treatment for pinworm itch.

Reese's Pinworm Itch Relief WipesThe over-the-counter Reese’s Pinworm Itch Relief Wipes provide temporary relief of pain, soreness, burning, itching or discomfort from anorectal inflammation while reducing contact with the highly contagious pinworm parasite, the company said. The wipes contain 1% pramoxine hydrochloride and come in a 20-count, on-the-go pouch.

Reese noted that the wipes were developed to be used in conjunction with Reese’s Pinworm Medicine, an OTC option that the company said retails for as much as 97% less than pinworm prescriptions.

Pinworm infects 20 million to 42 million people annually, but the infection is easily treatable, according to Reese. Pinworm occurs most often in school-age children, as the microscopic eggs are easily spread from child to child.

Pinworm infection is the most common type of intestinal worm infection in the United States and one of the most common worldwide. Pinworms are small parasites that can live in the colon and rectum. Most people infected with pinworms have no symptoms, but some experience anal itching and restless sleep.
