Patient Comments: Pinworms - Symptoms

What symptoms did you experience with pinworm infection? Were you surprised by the diagnosis?

Comment from: worried, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: April 03

I had pinworms from age 5 to 11. My mother tried to manually treat the infection at home. I would like to know about the long- term impact on development or on physical health.
