Recurring pin worms, itching. Remedy?

Please help! I've had pin worms on and off since I was 10... I'M 16 NOW! My butt and social life can't take much more off this. I ccan't do anything after 9pm with my friends cause my butt iches. I don't know what to do. Medicine just doesn't work. I'm thinking about trying the garlic thing... my clit is even starting to itch. I wanna cry.
