Symptoms of Pinworms

The most common symptom of pinworm infestation is intense itching around the anus, particularly at night. This itching is caused by the female pinworms laying their eggs in the skin folds around the anus. Other potential symptoms include irritability, restlessness, loss of appetite, and difficulty sleeping. In some cases, individuals may experience mild abdominal pain or nausea. Recognizing these symptoms is crucial for early detection and prompt treatment of pinworms.

If left untreated, pinworm infestation can lead to more serious complications such as secondary bacterial infections from excessive scratching. It is important to consult a healthcare professional if you suspect a pinworm infestation in order to receive proper diagnosis and treatment.
