Is there a way to tell it is pinworms besides the itching symptom?

In brief: Yes

The eggs are often seen on a "tape test" done by placing see through tape on the anal cleft and then examining it under the microscope.
Some parents find the worms that are like thin threads less than an inch long if they examine their kids (anus) after they have been asleep a while.
