  • little white worms that come out of her butt. They tell you to look at night w/ a flashlight or in her stools to see if she has them. They cause their butt to itch but can be cleared up easily w/ a pill.

  • Well pin worms are a parasite that you can get from under cooked meats and they live in the recton. I had a dr tell me to place a piece of tape just below my daughters rectom while she slept. They only surface at night. Thank God my daughter had none. But you can research them this site should help.

  • They are little worms that do come out of the rectum and they are easier to see at night when your child is sleeping. They can be caused by not washing your hands well after using the bathroom and putting your hands in your mouth.
