How can intestinal pinworm infestation and cough be treated?

Hi, so i recently bought a bottle of Captain Morgan spiced Rum in Malaysia whilst visiting, and since coming back have drunk it on three very seperate occasions, each time, not many days after.. I have developed pinworms and a very painful cough/ sore throat. Could these reactions be specific to the Rum bottle I bought, or would it be other factors? Each time I drank I did not share glasses with others. I don t understand how it could be the alcohol, but I can t think of any other reason.
