The eggs are laid in a glue like substance that irritates the skin, so the kids are often scratching the area & dispersing the eggs. If the kid or others touch their mouth with contaminated fingers, they get a dose of eggs & start over. ...Read more
Possibly: The fertile female pin worm exits the anus during quiet periods to lay their eggs in a sticky glue-like mucous. Many develop an itchy rash in reaction to this glue.

If you scratch you will get the eggs on you hands then when you touch something else the eggs stick on it and the next person who touches it gets the eggs on their hands. If these hands go in the mouth the eggs turn into pinworms in that person. ...Read more
