Same way cats gets them. She ate something. You need to go to the doctor and get her the appropriate medicine (most likely antibiotics). The reason she needs to go to the doctor is to get her tested for other types of worms. What if the invade an organ such as her heart? If you don't take care of it, it can be fatal (not that she's going to die soon, just that if you try to treat it yourself, you have no way of knowing for sure whether you killed them all).


heyteach
Sorry, you're going to need to take her to the doctor. Definitely sounds like pinworms and the treatments are outlined here:
http://www.emedicinehealth.com/pinworms/page6_em.htm
We're talking prescription meds, so a doctor is essential, plus he'll confirm the diagnosis.

That same site talks about other things to do to prevent them. Note the whole family likely will need to go on meds.

Treatment is easy. Go to the chemist and get a thread worm (pin worm) treatment. Most now days are a one dose affair. Then take off the sheets, any clothing that she had been wearing and wash in HOT water, and tumble dry hot, or sun dry.
Don't let her scratch there because that's how the worms transfer the eggs back to her mouth and start the cycle again. Firm fitting underwear, changed often will help.
As to where she got them from. The eggs are sticky and can be transferred from child to child if proper hygiene isn't followed (washing hands after going to the toilet, or before eating, etc), but they can hang around in dirt, dust and in bedding and clothing (that's the reason for the hot wash). Sometimes your family pet might have worms, which can be passed on, that's why treating them regularly is a good idea too.
This is a fairly common occurrence, so get on top of it and stay vigilant.
For a natural remedy you can try grated carrot with a teaspoon of ground up pumpkin seeds (a natural vermifuge), and give that to her once every second day till the symptoms stop.


eeyorechick101
Take your daughter to the dr. and have them check things out. Always make sure she washes her hands before she eats, and after using the bathroom. You will probably have to treat everything like you do lice wash in steaming hot water, etc. If she doesn't like washing her hands try picking up some germ-x hand goop.

she probably got them from any young animal like a puppy or a kitten
they are not good but i dont think that she is going to die
just take her to a doctor and they should give some sort of medicine to kill them just get her there very quickly
(i may be wrong about where they came from but you need to get here to a doctor or call a doctor)


Dianachka
Don't panic at all! Believe it or not these are just string worms and they are very, very common. I know because my sister had them and I took her to the doctor's and I talked to the doctor. This is nothing to worry about. They can be caused from some unclean foods, but most of the time they are caused by someone else. So the bad part is its contagious so I suggest going to the doctor. But they are very easy to kill. The doctor just prescribes some very strong pills that kill them right away and in a matter of a few days she will not have them anymore! Hope this helps you! :) Good Luck! :)

I THINK SHE HAS PIN WORMS. CHECK THE WEBSITE IN MY SOURCE.

TAKE YOUR DAUGHTER TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM AND THEY WILL CONTACT YOUR DOCTOR. MAKE SURE YOUR DOCTOR IS AFFILATED WITH THE HOSPITAL. IF NOT CALL THE DOCTOR AND TELL THE DOCTOR YOU THINK YOUR DAUGHTER HAS PIN WORMS. THE DOCTOR CAN PHONE IN A PRESCRIPTION TO YOUR PHARMACY

I HAD THAT HAPPEN TO ME AND I WAS GIVEN A SHAMPOO TO USE DOWN THERE. MAKE SURE YOU WASH ANYTHING SHE HAD HAD CONTACT WITH IN HOT WATER AND ADD BLEACH.

Hi! I know it can be quite alarming but threadworms are very common, especially amongst children but most of all they are not harmful, well not unless you have thousands of them which in this country is highly unlikely! Your daughter has probably had them for quite some time if you are seeing them on her bottom. She's probably picked up the eggs from a park or another child. The best thing to prevent them is good hygiene. Washing hands after going to the loo and before eating etc, with a nail brush if possible as the eggs tend to collect under the nails. As for getting rid of the little beggars........ You can get some stuff from the chemist called Pripsen, it comes in a sachet of powder or in tablet form. you take one dose and then a follow up dose I think 2 weeks later, you can double check with your pharmacist. During the treatment time meticulous hygiene is a must. Cut nails as short as possible, buy a nail brush for each member of your family, there is a good chance you all have them, wash towels after using only once, don't share towels and try not to scratch!!! The worms mature at approx 6 weekly intervals. The eggs get laid, they get ingested, the eggs hatch, the worms mature and they make their way "outside" to lay their eggs, that's why your little girl is itchy, they will irritate her but scratching will only get more eggs under her nails for her to swallow. They usually come out at night when your body is less active so showering in the morning if you have the time will wash off the eggs. Due to the fact that they lay their eggs at night it may be wise to put mittens and tight fitting pants on your Daughter or even yourself as we can scratch ourselves when we are sleeping but not know it, mittens and the underwear will help stop bare hands getting to the eggs. Pripsen is also available on prescription so see your doctor too. I hope this helps but try not to worry, they will be gone in a couple of weeks. DD x

take her 2 the doctor & they'll give u a prescription 2 give her & after u give it 2 her wash all her bed clothes & vacuum ur floors.children get them by biting their nails & putting dirty hands in their mouth so make sure she washes her hands after using the bathroom & before she eats.don't worry about it,it will b fine

Most kids get worms from some other kid who has them. Just go to the drug store and get her some worm medicine. Check her stools daily until there are no more. It clears up pretty quickly 3-4 days should do it. Don't worry, it's common enough, just itchy and unsightly.

umm do you know what kind of worm, I know some kids get pinworms I think it is in their buttcracks try googling it. I am pretty sure it's not that uncommon, but if its a long worm then I don't know, but jeesh you got some rude answeres on here, some ppl are no help at all, anyways Goodluck and your daughter isn't screwed she may just need some medication hopefully.
P.S. they aren't ringworm, ringworm is a skin disease and has nothing to do with worms

I don't know for sure however I use garlic for any thing that doesn't belong in my body because garlic kills so many things.

Have her eat some raw garlic or puree it in a blender to drink. Put it in some V8 to make it easier, and it has to be sipped else she may throw.

This will do a wide-spectrum cleanse of her blood and digestive system. The odor should be gone in 4 hours.

Do this several times over a weekend.


ferdinandrios71
The cure is simple, rapid and with no consequences, but, since each type of worm (Hymenolepis, Taenia, Dyphilobotrium,etc) could need a different treatment and dose, I strongly recommend you a stool analysis (a serial of three different samples in different days, to an accurate diagnosis, maybe could be a poli- infestation), and then go with the results to your doctor

It's not unusual for kids to get worms, especially in elementary school. I think those kind of worms are a toilet seat issue, and anyone can get em. Take the kid to the doctor and/or a good wellness doctor for solutions to deworming.

Want the really bad news? Your whole family will need to be treated. Chances are, everyone else has it, too.


jolisillage
Pretty easy, but you need to see a doctor who will give her something that will drive them out.

And make sure your cook the meat better next time!


deejayspop
She has pinworms, not uncommon in children but now your entire family needs to be treated, see you family care provider, there is a single dose pill that everyone must take, you will have to throughly clean your toilet, all bed linens. There are several websites you can look up , just google Pinworm treatment. It's not your fault, it happens.

As gross as it seems, it is fairly common in children. Children play with other children, and are always putting their fingers in their mouth or nose. This is how the worms get into the body.

My daughter got them when she was about 4 and I took her to the dr. He gave her a pill to take and her dad & I had to take one as a precaution. I had to wash all the bedding and pj's and we were never bothered with them again.


Blue eyes
Go to chemist will give you something to get rid of them normally one dose then a couple of days later another dose then thy are gone . make sure she has her own towel. most children get them so no worries. good luck """""


i met him at the candy store
This is called pinworm. It's really gross. It is most likely from bitting her nails, which is where the worms are born and where they grow. Google search "pinworm" if you want to find out more.


muchluv4pets
They are Pinworms, and they can easily be rid of by visiting a doctor so they can give her some deworming medication. They don't cause much of a problem except for the itching. You also need to make sure you wash her underwear and sheets in hot water to kill the eggs. Good Luck.

P.S. It is not ring worm or from undercooked meat. Kids (and adults, too) can get it from dirty fingers or toys in their mouthes.

I have worked in Pharmacy for over 20 years and worms is quite common in little ones. They sit out in the dirt and play or they get the dirt in their mouths and the worms are in the dirt. That is how she got them, now, you need to see her Dr and have him/her prescribe a medication for the whole family. Chances are that if she has worms so do you and the rest of the household. The house should be cleaned from top to bottom after the medication is taken so that you are not infected again. Wash all the linens, vaccum vigorously, sweep and mop with Bleach. The only way you will get rid of these worms is by a prescription, sorry but true. I hope this has helped. Blessings to you and yours this Holiday Season.


Harriet
You can actually get over-the-counter treatment that fixes worms. I think some of it for children is in the form of chocolate.

However you might like to take her to the doctor just to be sure everything's okay.

This can be pretty common in kids, so don't worry about it.


MBN
They're probably pin worms. She likely picked it up from a cat or other animal that has them. They're very contagious. You'll need to take her to the doctor for medication to kill them. Check any animals you have just in case. But she could have gotten them from anywhere.

Pinworms, they are harlmess and you can get rid of them with over the counter remedies from the drug store.

I think they're called pin worms. Kids get them from playing in the dirt and then putting their fingers in there mouths. Your doctor can write a prescription for it.

Feces, Poop & Butt Issues / Question
Published: July 15, 2003

Dear TeenHealthFX,

Hello...while I was going to the bathroom I noticed something that looked like little white worms coming out of my butt. What is this? Any ideas? Please help!

Signed: Little Worms From My Butt





Dear Little Worms From My Butt,



This sounds like pinworms, but a doctor must check you out to be sure. TeenHealthFX cannot offer a diagnosis, so a visit with your healthcare provider is important to determine what the cause of this condition is.



Pinworms are very small light-colored worms that can be seen around the rectum or in feces. People are infected by unknowingly eating microscopic pinworm eggs. The eggs pass into the digestive system and hatch in the small intestine. From the small intestine, pinworm larvae continue their journey to the large intestine, where they live as parasites. About 2 to 4 weeks after the pinworm eggs were originally acquired; adult female pinworms move from the large intestine to the area around the rectum. There they will lay new pinworm eggs, which trigger itching around the rectum. When someone scratches the itchy area, microscopic pinworm eggs are transferred to their fingers. Contaminated fingers can carry pinworm eggs to many different surfaces, including: bed linens, towels, clothing, toilets, drinking glasses, and food. Pinworm eggs are able to live on a surface for 2 to 3 weeks. This is why strict hand washing is so important to stop the spread of this infection as well as others. Pinworms should be treated with medication. Please contact your doctor, or if you live in northern NJ, call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at (973) 971-6475.

This seems similar.
Added: Right now you should make her wash her hands and clean her butt to make sure it dosn't spread, but take her to the docter as soon as you can.


icarus62
Just ask the pharmacist for threadworm treatment. No problem. Encouraging good hygiene will help to keep them away in future (washing hands, not chewing fingernails etc.).

they are probably pin worms.
pinworms are the most common worm infection in the United States. Then, anywhere from two to six weeks, those pinworms will mature and crawl out of your child's butt and lay eggs near their anus. It gets better. The pinworm eggs cause your child's butt to itch, so they scratch at it, and the pinworm eggs get everywhere: under your kid's nails, on your kid's clothes, on the bedding, and even in the dust that hangs around your home. Once this happens, your entire family and your kid's friends and classmates are almost guaranteed to get the same infection. Are you grossed out enough to take pinworms seriously now? Well, here are some things you should know if you want to get rid of pinworms and prevent a pinworm infection.

Vermox is the most common prescription medicine used to get rid of pinworms.

Reese's Pinworm Medicine is a very common and very effective Over The Counter pinworm treatment.

To make sure you get rid of pinworms, wash your bedding and clothing regularly during and after pinworm treatments. Pinworms are an extremely contagious worm infection. The eggs can lay dorman for up to 2 weeks if they're kept at room temperature, and you'll find them just about everywhere. This is why it's important to clean anything and everything the infected person has come into contact with, which includes mopping floors to avoid kicking up dust that may contain worm eggs--causing yet another worm infection.

The following is a list of OTC worm medications:

Pin-X
Pin-Rid
Antiminth
Reese's Pinworm Medicine
Anything with Pyrantel pamoate.

first off-don't freak out, it is quite common in children because they aren't very good at washing their hands and not putting things in their mouth that they shouldn't.
You do need to see your MD though, they won't make her sick, but she does need to be treated. hope this helps.

There is no need to take her to the ER, there is nothing they can do that will be a faster treatment than if you bring her to your MD tomorrow.
