  • Pinworms
    Pinworms are tiny parasitic worms that live in the large intestine. The female worms lay their eggs around the anus at night. Symptoms include anal itching, sleeplessness, irritability, and anal irritation due to scratching. Pinworms may also be present without symptoms. Pinworms are common in school-aged children.

  • Pinworms
    Small, white, moving worm-like things ARE worms -- probably pinworms. Worms are not a sign that you are an unclean person; you can pick up some types of worms through foods, some during travel to tropical countries, some by contact with a person who has them. You need treatment with an appropriate medication, which you need to get from your doctor.

  • Pinworms and Your Child
    Pinworm infections are common in families with small children.

  • Ringworm Facts
    Ringworm is a contagious fungus infection that can affect the scalp, the body, the feet (athlete's foot), or the nails.

  • Ringworm in the Child Care Setting
    Ringworm is a fungus infection of the scalp or skin. Symptoms include a rash that is often itchy and flaky. Ringworm on the scalp may leave a flaky patch of baldness. On other areas of the skin, ringworm causes a reddish, ringlike rash that may itch or burn. The area may be dry and scaly or it may be moist or crusted. The same fungi that infect humans can also infect animals such as dogs and cats, and infections may be acquired from pets as well as from infected children.
