Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
Pinworm infection is spread by the fecal-oral route, that is by the transfer of infective pinworm eggs from the anus to someone’s mouth
that is why it is important to wash your hands with soap and water after bowel movements and using the toilet
if you wash your hands after using the toilet, then this stops the spread of pinworms.
