Brooklynn asks:

I get little white worms in my poop and they're about the size of my pinky nail and there really thin. What could they be? They make my butt itch really bad, too.


Dear Brooklynn,

You most likely have pinworms. Pinworm is the most common worm infection in the United States.

Pinworms are parasites that live in the large intestine. They come out through the anus to lay eggs at night. Pinworms are about a third of an inch long and look like white threads. Often, some of them can be seen in the bowel movements.

When you scratch your butt in the middle of the night while you are sleeping, then touch your mouth, or food that will end up in your mouth, you eat the eggs that are under your fingernails and get re-infected.

See your doctor. There is a pill that you can take to get rid of these worms. It is called Vermox. There are also OTC meds to treat pinworms, and eating raw, shredded carrots helps to expel the worms.

Thanks for asking Motherload!

My God little Anonymous kid, you have been holding in your poo so the worms won't come out? You realize of course that by holding them in they are having a field day eating your vital internal organs? Do they make you shiver while they munch your liver? Well, we certainly know who is not going to see eleven unless they get their little ass to a doctor or a druggist for some medicine.

Sorry to tell you Anonymous, but you waited to late! The pinworms have already destroyed the portion of your brain that allows you to use the shift bar on your keyboard (the thing that makes capital letters)and allows you to use punctuation other than exclamation marks. There seems to be little hope for you.

Uuuh so yeah i have pinworms and i don't know what to do ://

Honestly i'm such a coward, i can't talk to ANYONE about my problems. i'm normally really anti-social and can barley look people in the eye when were just talking about normal stuff.

All this stuff about taking, Pinx? then disenfecting your entire room, washing your hands everyone single moment, seeing a doctor, talking to parents, eating raw carrot...it's really quite scary.

can someone just tell me something simple i should do? WITHOUT having to tell anyone ://

Also: does having pinworms make the area around your butthole kinda grey-ish? do i have more than one disease D:

Dear WTF, I have seen lots of different animal's intestinal parasites, having worked for several years in a slaughterhouse, but none that looked like what you describe. Your worm was much too large to have been a hookworm or a pinworm and even though it could have been a pork roundworm the fact that it had rings around it pretty much rules that out. Tape worms come to mind but then the body would have been flat rather than round.

I think if I were you I would try to get a pathologist to check out a stool sample. Parasites can live in our innards for lengthy periods of time so I wouldn't totally rule out Bali. You also might consider giving your dog's vet a sample in case it really is a canine parasite.

Dear creeped out girl, Go through the five pages of comments that preceded yours and you can find one that is almost identical to yours, then just follow that advice.

I fist found out that I had white wormy things around 2 months ago and now I'm scared to death that I will find them again. Today while I was crapping I looked at my tp and there was 2-9 white worms again and I just went on a long trip with a lot of people, what do I do and I'm freaking out here and itching like crazy on my butt. Is this pin worms? I'm like crazy scared about this, what do I do?

WTF is it?'s picture

OK, you seem like a helpful community so I'm going to give this a shot:
I found a worm in my stool about a month ago, about an INCH long, white, kind of sectioned (like it had lines around it circling around its perimeter).

It was kind of curled up at first, almost looked like it made a circle on one end then the rest of it, then I saw it move and uncurl the thing I thought was a circle, so I think it was actually just long.

So what I did was: Get this, I actually fished it out of my poop. Brought it into my doctor, sent it to a lab and the f'ing brilliant lab came back to me with this piece of wisdom:
"Not a human parasite."

Thanks a lot. Saw another doctor at the same office who said "Oh, they sent it to the wrong place, a standard lab only knows how to run a few basic tests. Too bad they didn't send it to a pathologist."

Of course the sample is gone now. I haven't seen any more since then but I have had weird poops, some extra soft, some cramping, some a lot of volume.

My belly is distended, however it has been that way for 20 years since I had bulimia so that may not be related.

I actually GAINED 15 pounds in the last year so I don't think it's tapeworm.

I am suspecting hookworm ...maybe pinworm but it seems too large for pinworm. I do have a bit of anal itching but not that much.

I don't trust stool sample testing because I know a lot of people who have had parasites for years and had loads (no pun intended) of tests until they finally figured out which parasite it was.

Who knows how long I've had this thing? I was in Bali in 1997, I don't know if I could have picked it up way back then....Or caught something from my dog....

Dog was rubbing her butt like she had worms, so we just got HER on a dewormer.

So what do you guys think I have?
What to do to get rid of it?

I'm considering colon hydrotherapy and herbs...Open to doing a dewormer if I have to but I don't want to go on tons of them trial and error to figure out what it is. I have a immune weakness (unrelated) and it's not a good idea to pound a lot of meds like that if I can avoid it....Nor is it good to walk around with a parasite for months or years...

What do you recommend?

So I only noticed I had them when I felt something crawling around in my VAG. And I freaked the fuck out. Several days later, and much embaressment and worm jokes from my boyfriend, I took Pin-X.

Its been a day and I haven't seen any in my poo or vag, but my butt still has that tingly wormy feeling.

How long do these worms take? I want to have sex already!!

Cowardly Lion, What kind of relationship do you have with your parents that you think they would be angry with you if you had worms? I think, and hope, that you are wrong in that respect. Just tell them what's going on and they will probably be happy to pick you up something from the drugstore to remedy your situation.

Careful with the carrots, if you eat too many you will turn the same color as John Boehner.

I am a teen, and am ninty percent sure that I have pinworms. I am scared to tell my family because they might get mad. I really need help. I'm so scared it's not funny. I have had these for 2 days I think and today I got really worried so I looked them up on the internet, came across this site and am thankful but also curious. I am eating a bunch of carrots. I am only barley 13 and cant go out to a drug store by myself.

Please, I want to know what to do. I am deathly scared to even go to the bathroom. I'm glad school ended because my butt itches a lot.

Please help me!!! I'm very very scared! Help asap

I found out the other day I had pinworms (had them as a kid & knew what it felt like & to look for) so I took a dose of Pin X and washed everything I could put in the washer. No itching that night, and the next morning after I pooped, there were yellow rice looking things in the toilet. Same thing today. I'm assuming the little bastards are dead or else I'd be having symptoms, but I'm going to take another dose of the Pin X in 14 days to be sure. How long will I continue to shit these things out? I'm not sure what's worse...thinking of worms coming out of my ass at night, or a stomach full of dead ones! Love this site, btw.

I have pin worms and have only just found out a few days ago. My mum bought me some ovex medicine and I had some before I went to bed but today I still feel itchy near my anus. I went to the toilet to poo and found there were still little worms there. How long until they go? I'm really fed up with having them!

Chief, I think it's your turn.

Anonymous Coward's picture

Hi,
I had an itchy vagina for a few weeks and then my anus started itching so I thought perhaps it might be pinworms and that maybe I hadn't noticed the anal symptoms at first. Although I never saw any in my poo but I thought just to be safe. I took ovex 5 days a go and the itching in anus has stopped but I have pooped once since taking ovex and not seen any dead worms. I have been washing twice a day but my vagina still feels a little itchy every so often, and when I looked at it was covered in discharge. I also saw a clump of discharge that could have been a worm but when I went to get a towel to clean it, when I came to look again it had gone so I am not sure if it moved? I thought worms couldn't live long in vagina, and seeing as though I took ovex I thought they would all be dead.
My discharge has been a tint of yellow for a bit and none of my friends seem to have any symptoms. I am not sure what I am seeing, would it be obvious if I had them (especially after i took ovex)? Or have I not pooped enough to expel them all?
I also have a runny nose, a cough, and headaches that feel like there is pressure against my skull. I am going to the doctor on Thursday but I am really worried. I live in a accommodation at uni and don't want to have to tell everyone so they can get treated.
I am also a couple of weeks late with my period, (not pregnant)
Anyone have any idea what it could be?
Thank you!

Well AC, Your poorly written comment raises a few questions in my mind. If you don't scrach[sic] your butt that must mean that your butt doesn't itch. If there is no itch how did you discover that your asshole was infested?

So, all your friends see them every day. Why do you show your butthole to your friends? Do you use a mirror when you see them or do you just have a flexible neck?

I don't know what is happing[sic] either!

Chief, long before a worm sticks its head out, several special ops worms would have already positioned themselves in lookout posts. You and your measly carrot would have been out flanked and the carnage would be severe.

Dear Karolina, Eating carrots is indeed a homeopathic remedy for helping to rid the body of pin worms as are raw garlic, pumpkin seeds, and beets. These veggies are also nutritious and tasty.

You could also have a trusted friend guard your asshole and use a carrot for a bludgeon when a worm sticks its head out to have a look around.

All you youngsters who are afraid to tell your parents about your worm infested assholes listen to me and heed my warning. I was a brave young lass and when I first suspected that my ass crack was playing host to several thousand pinworms I immediately informed my parents in hope they would seek medical attention for my itching anus, alas, it was not to be.

They told me it would be too humiliating for them to admit their daughter was "unclean" so they locked me in the basement and denied me all contact with the outside world. They send all my meals down via a dumb waiter and allow me no contact with the outside world at all.

I have been here for 13 years and the only time I see anyone is when my father, a devout fisherman, comes down to harvest some bait from my ravaged asshole. Other than that my pet cockroach "Clive" is my only diversion.

If only I had done the wise thing and remained silent.

Little scared girl, or whatever, Dr. Butt and myself both received our degrees at the prestigious University of Assholeology and Cave Exploration in Uganda. We are experts in the field, but due to possible exposure to litigation we do not dispense medical advice here. We instead pursue our degree minors of Sophmoronic humor and Wiseassery. You say you are afraid to tell anyone, but just by posting here you have managed to tell, umm I'm guessing, thousands of people. Telling your parents or doctor will only increase that amount by a fraction.
And by the way (BTW), if you think pinworms in YOUR ass are scary, just imagine pinworms in Dr. Thunderbutts ass. That's a horror film even Alfred Hitchcock would run away screaming from.

How long would it take for you to get rid of the pinworms after the first dosage? I get that you have to take a second dosage after 2 weeks but that's only to minimize the risk of them coming back. So how long until you stop itching and can finally get a good night's sleep?

Hmm, so it sounds as if the only way to a decisive answer is to either do the test, or find something that's unquestionably a worm engaging in worm-like action, then? What if I were the type who tends to forgo the intermediary procedures in favor of an 'ounce of prevention' kind of scenario? What are the potential ramifications and/or dangers of using something like Pin-X or Vermox if I *don't* actually have the worms?

DSN, A live wriggling pinworm may be seen occasionally hitching a ride on a turd but the best thing for you to do is ask your health provider for a pinworm detection kit. Your significant other can part your cheeks in the middle of the night or very early morning, place a piece of tape briefly over your o-ring then put the tape on a glass slide for a microscopic evaluation at the lab. This procedure will bring you closer together.

This may be a dumb question, but would pinworms still be moving after being expelled? (say, on the paper, or in the bowl?)

I've had crazy itching at all hours of the day for a few months now, but it could be a roid-related case of the swamps, or more likely p-a eczema. The itching is pretty evenly spread across the entire crack area, and I suspect my GP would/should have mentioned parasites during the rectal exam if that were the case, no? On the other hand, with a toddler in the house, (who's not showing any signs, by the way) I can't necessarily rule pinworms out, though.

I guess what I'm asking is: If I had them, and I came across some on the paper or in the bowl post-BM, would it be pretty unmistakable what I was looking at, or is there a lot of room for interpretation? I've seen stuff that could be worms, or it could just be some undigested onion/celery/veg fiber; hard to tell if stuff doesn't move, y'know?

Anonymous me, the next time you poop and there are worms in the poop don't flush the commode. I would guess that when your mom sees worms with her own eyes she will be inclined to believe you. You can stop being so scared also, worms, unless you have them in massive quantities, aren't going to harm you. Although pinworm infections can be annoying, they rarely cause serious health problems and are usually not dangerous.

AW, you should have nothing to worry about. Pinworms just prefer assholes. The only other place I have heard them migrate to was the tongue and tonsils, where they spend many happy years sharing your meals.

Anonymous Worrrms's picture

Ok, so I apparently acquired pin worms as a child. I never told my mom because I was too embarrassed/didn't know what to do. They ended up going away. That was about 13 years ago. After that I never saw the worms again. I'm worried that since I didn't take any mess when I had them that they might still be thriving inside my gut. So, what happens if you don't medicate? Can the live inside you without the symptoms of itching/worms in poop? And if so, could they move to other organs? I know that animals can get heartworms, so could pinworms move to your heart?

MSG is probably right Maria so as an added inducement for showing themselves have your friend announce, via a stethoscope up your ass, that free margaritas are being offered up on the rim along with the cornmeal.

Kinda an ass-crack happy hour.

The only trouble with Chief's remedy is that it doesn't bring out all the pinworms at once. Some will be left inside even after those that like cornmeal have come out, and those still inside can reproduce. Not even a laxative will bring them all out. The remedy: POISON! Of course, that can make you sick as well as the worms. Oh, wait--you don't want to get sick (who would?).

Drat! It comes down to this: Tell your folks about your problem and have them arrange for you to get to a doctor, who can prescribe a medicine that is death to the wormies but safe for you. Not pleasant, but a whole lot better than going through life with worms eating your poop before you can even extrude it--to say nothing of your possibly infecting other people.

Well Maria, you certainly blew your cover as an Anonymous Coward by divulging your name. Your goal of ridding your butt of parasites without telling your parents or going to a doctor, which would have been my first two choices, will be a little more difficult but I would try this.

Get a friend to help you and lie on your stomach while your friend props your ass cheeks open with q-tips. Have your friend sprinkle corn meal around your pucker and when the worms come out for a quick meal they can be grabbed and disposed of. I hope this helps.

Dear 11- and 14-year-old: What kind of parents do you think you have? If there is something wrong with you, they need to know. Since you are too young to drive, and probably can't pay for a doctor visit yourself anyhow, you need to enlist your parents' aid in the matter of pinworms. Another consideration is that you may be passing them on to someone else. All it takes is one faulty hand-wash after a bowel movement, and you have left those eggs somewhere where someone else can touch them and get infected. Tell your folks now!

I've gotten pinworms about 2 years ago, and moved out of the house I was living in, but now I live in a different house and got them again about 3 weeks ago, right now I have them AGAIN. Belive me when I say wash EVERYTHING. These are worth washing everything because they give me insomnia. They are very discusting and they make me feel gross. Don't take expired medicine because it does not help. I researched these and if you dont have 20 bucks to spair on the speical medicine, garlic works great but takes ALOT longer than the medicine. The medicine gets rid of them in one to two days. THANK GOD, I'm done with these ass itching worms.

According to one website I checked Prescription medication is usually given to expel pinworms. But if you would rather go the natural route, try adding extra garlic to your diet. Kevin Pederson of Home Remedies for You says that garlic is effective in killing pinworms. Eat a few cloves on a daily basis. You can also mix less than half of a pinch of ground garlic with petroleum jelly and spread the resulting paste around your anal region. The paste will kill any pinworms, it will also give your asshole an interesting smell.

This may not be available in the UK but if there is a Hispanic grocery near your home check their produce section for a leaf called "epazote", it is popular in Mexico as an addition to cooked beans. It is added to many animal feeds in the USA because of its parasite controlling ability. It may be an acquired taste but I am rather fond of it.

Good luck in controlling your pinworms and perhaps developing a better relationship with your parents.

You may well be right Ibbie ... My produce shopping destinations are now; a Hispanic market, an Asian market, and Aldi's. I may have just developed immunity from overexposure to their particular type of ass critters.

The Asian market is my favorite because they have a tremendous variety of veggies at bargain prices. They sell Hispanic veggies also and purslane, Verdolaga in Spanish, is my favorite base upon which to build a salad. Purslane is a very good source of omega 3 acids, not usually associated with green leafy veggies. Looks like watercress but fleshier and more succulent.

I think I mentioned this before also but I was in my local Kroger store several years ago and felt the urge to piss. As I entered the bathroom and headed for the urinal I could not help but notice someone was in the end stall and, from the position of their feet, obviously taking a shit. As I pissed I heard the unmistakable sound of toilet paper being pulled from the roll and finally the flush of the commode. I was at the sink washing my hands when the stall door opened and the manager of the produce department left the bathroom without even looking at the sink.

I took all the produce I had planned on purchasing back to the produce counter and then filed a verbal complaint with the store manager who said he would do something about it.

That was several years ago and since the same man still works there I have been purchasing all my veggies and fruits elsewhere. I felt like Seinfeld did in the episode when Poppy was making Jerry a pizza without washing his hands.

I don't know if your colon cleanse will clear you of worms or not but it could possible rupture your intestines and leave you open to death by peritonitus. It's cheaper, and safer, to ask your doctor or pharmacist for appropriate medication.

I'm 28 and just found pinworms when wiping 2 nights ago. I had "itching" for 1-2 months for a couple days at a time and attributed it to pooping too hard (go nuts making fun of this it's ok!) I didn't sleep all night as I kept feeling them literally crawl out of me and would be running to the bathroom to get rid of them (found maybe 12-15 throughout the night). I googled pinworms and what to do all night long and finally tried garlic paste mixed with vaseline and put it on the area. Which seemed to kind of work. Long story short I went and got Vermex from my doctor took the first pill yesterday. Last night was the same story with the worms though! How long does it take to work????? Help me please I can't sleep!!! Does this drug kill them or just help them go out in your poop? They are still ALIVE after 24 hours...

FYI - I have never had pinworms before, have no kids, don't work with kids and keep a clean house! I wash sheets once a week, vacuum the mattress on a regular basis, do regular laundry, I have 2 cats, but they say it's not transferable from pets - WTF???!!!

I'm also doing a hydro colon cleanse tomorrow (like an enema but much more invasive administered by a technician), will this rid me of them for good? I WANT THEM GONE!!

Now...I'm going to go and have my very own panic attack..

I ripped off my bedding and stuffed it outside. I can't tell my mom, she'll freak out and quarantine me ): she'd freak that SHE had them and it'd be major bad news. My brother whom I'm about to live with would tease me until I died, no lie.
I'm a lousy driver, what can I do?! I'm NOT going back in that bed, no way. I think I'll shower then blame my all-nighter on the stress of moving out.
I've been searching online, but none of the websites say what to do for worms -right now- only that you should go to your Doctor (fat chance).
I've heard that "Pyrontel Pamoate" in its pure dosage is safe for humans. I'm going to take some tomorrow (today) when the stores open.

Hi Motherload an everyone on here!

I have just realised that i might have parasites, i had bloating, unexplained fatigue,mood swings(crazy ones),unexplained acne and farting for weeks, my belly looked like i was 4-5 months preggers. So with these symptoms i had a home colonic irrigation and the bloating went away. My question is that, about a week before i realised it could be parasites I'm pretty sure i saw holes in my poop (i was a bit constipated too).

I can't find anything online about ''holes in poop''! Do parasite make holes in your poop????

So I think I may have pinworms but I'm not completely sure. My anus itches especially at night (it doesn't keep me awake or anything it's just really itchy) during the day it's sometimes itchy as well. I've been dealing with this for months (itchy anus at night.)
I went to my doctor recently because I thought I had a yeast infection but it turns out that it is a bacterial infection. I have read that if pinworms reach the vagina they can sometimes cause a bacterial infection. I have never seen worms or eggs in my stools or even in my underwear. I am seriously considering putting clear tape on my butt tonight to see if I can spot worms or eggs. This has really got me freaked out. Today I asked my family if they have experienced a itchy anus at night because I know its near impossible to be the only one in a household with the parasite. Needless to say my family now thinks I'm a hypochondriac. Even after I told them how common pinworms are and that most people can go their entire lives without even knowing they have/had the parasite. Ugh this is so frustrating. I have been to the doctors so many times lately and I don't want to go back unless I'm sure that I do in fact have pinworms and that it's not all in my head. What should I do? I was thinking of just taking an over the counter medicine but how will it effect me if I don't have pinworms? I would really appreciate some advice on this matter.

Okay, so I read the comment on pin worms causing problems in the uterus and fallopian tubes. What kind of problems? Can they make it so that a woman cannot become pregnant?

yea garlic and coconut are toxic to pinworms so if you eat that they will kill the worms. also, if you put mashed up garlic on your butt it will kill any eggs on there and that will help stop the cycle of the worms. those are the only home remedies that I know of.

Bravo AC. Perhaps one of the most intelligent comments posted in a long time. I have one question though. Although it was about 50 years ago, I can still remember the foul taste of the medicine. I think it was purpously made that way so kids would make sure they never got pinworms again. How does the medicine today taste?

Oh God, now everything I eat today is going to taste like that medicine. Oh the horror.
