I think I have pinworms. How do I know? I have a slight "pinch" around my anus. I checked and i see no worms. I am not affected diet wise or nothing out of the ordinary. I feels wierd though.
Pinworm is another name for enterobius vermicularis. It lives in the large intestine. Pin worms are visible without magnification. They look like little white worms. The female is about the length of staple and the male is smaller. During sleep female pinworms travel from the large intestine to lay their eggs around the anus.
Often a person with pinworm doesnâ€™t have any symptoms. There can be itching around the anus or vagina and in more severe cases there can be problems sleeping, sense of restlessness, abdominal discomfort and drop in appetite.
The easiest way to diagnose pinworm is using an adhesive tape from the doctorâ€™s office. Either the first thing in the morning or in the middle of the night, you apply the tape to your anus. Egg and sometimes worms will adhere to the tape which is then brought back to the doctor. The tape is microscopic evaluated to identify the worms. ...Read more
Might....but..: Anal itching from PW's is not from the worms but a skin reaction to the glue like material the eggs are deposited in around the anus.

You should be able to be 'cured' easily with a medicine your doc gave you (mebendazole). The key is your partner and the environment - where did these eggs come from and how to AVOID re-infection. Eggs can last 2 to 3 weeks- and you need a second round of medication at that time, incase anything's alive ...Read more
Your doctor can : A scotch tape test can be done for you. You set your alarm to wake up in the middle of the night (when the pinworms are usually active) and press a piece of scotch tape to your anus. The tape is then stuck to a microscope slide and the laboratory can look for pinworm eggs. A stool sample for ova and parasites is not as good a way to diagnose. Some just do presumptive tx if exposed. ...Read more
