In brief: Pinworm diagnosis
Early in the morning, before bathing, look closely at your child's recturm. Pinworms look like tiny white threads, or toilet paper residue.
You can do a pinworm tape test and submit to the lab for definitive diagnosis.

In brief: Depends
If symptomatic, they will have rental itching.
If not, they will be asymptomatic. The test is an inspection of the rectum for pin worms or their eggs.
