19 Vagina Problems That Can Actually Happen
Pinworms are the most common worm infection in the United States. School-age children are most often affected. Pinworm eggs are spread directly from person to person. They can also be spread by touching bedding, food, or other items that are contaminated with the eggs. Typically, children are infected by touching pinworm eggs without knowing it and then putting their fingers in their mouth. They swallow the eggs, which eventually hatch in the small intestine.
Parasitic pinworms normally try to make themselves at home in the digestive tract, however sometimes these worms can wriggle their way into the vagina, becoming vaginal pinworms. Pinworms may also be called just simply worms, threadworms, or seatworms Enterobius vermicularis. These worms are contagious, with their eggs passed from surface to surface — sheets, towels, toilets, underwear, food, cups, plates, etc. We inadvertently eat the eggs, and then they hatch once inside our small intestine.
