Sorry, could you be specific, where did this worm like thing come from, what part of her body?

Also, do you happen to have a picture of this?

No pic. Came from anus
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

Has she had diarrhea or weight loss the past few weeks?

By the time a tape worm comes out she would have had it for weeks or months which would cause her to have drastic weight loss, nausea, lack of appetite and possibly a rash/fevers/itching.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
