In brief: Test

Some symptoms may be indicative of parasites , such as diarrhea, peri-anal itch, elevated level of certain blood cell type ( eosinophil) etc.
.., but to definitely know if you have parasite is to identify it by specific tests ( stool for ova and parasites, scotch tape test, anti body test and so on), if you think you may be infested with a parasites, tell your doctor about it.
