Pinworm : Pinworm typically causes severe anal itching, which is a result of the pinworm laying the eggs outside the rectum at night. Your symptoms are not characteristic of pinworm, but there are many other worms/parasites that could be the problem. You will have to see your doctor, and have your stool sent for analysis in order to determine a cause. What you are seeing may also be fat or something you ate that was not completely digested. The burning may be a result of inflammation or even a hemorrhoid. Please see your doctor; an examination and testing is key. Good luck.

Unlikely pinworms: Pinworms get their name from their tiny size. The diameter is like a pin, but much shorter, about 1/4 inch long, & if found in the stool, are white and will move. More commonly, they cause itching at night around the anus when they come out and lay eggs. Pain with stools are more likely to be from hemorrhoids or an anal fissure from excessive size.
