11. Treat Pinworms with Garlic
Pinworms are a common intestinal parasite that cause excessive itching. This problem is most commonly experienced by children, but it is possible that adults could end up with this medical issue during an emergency scenario.
There are several home remedies that you can utilize to help clear up a pinworm infection, including adding freshly grated garlic to the sufferer’s food. A smooth garlic paste can also be made by grinding up some cloves, and this can be applied to the rectum in order to kill the pinworm eggs.
