Causes of Pinworms

Pinworms are primarily caused by the ingestion of pinworm eggs, which can be found in contaminated food, water, or on surfaces such as bedding, clothing, and toys. Poor hygiene practices, such as not washing hands thoroughly after using the restroom, can also contribute to the spread of pinworms. Additionally, close contact with individuals who are infected with pinworms can increase the risk of transmission. Understanding these causes is essential in taking preventive measures to avoid pinworm infestation.
