Pinworms are small, thin, white parasitic worms that infect the intestines.

L.acidophilus is a probiotic or "good bacteria" that lives naturally in your intestines and vagina. It has been used to treat or prevent vaginal yeast infections, yeast infections of the mouth, diarrhea caused by taking antibiotics, and urinary tract infections.

Probiotics work by restoring the natural balance of bacteria in your system, which helps rid your body of harmful bacteria. Taking probiotic supplements or eating foods rich in probiotics may help your body work more efficiently at killing parasites.

The most effective treatment for worms is with a medicines such as mebendazole and albendazole.
