Enterobiasis is a pinworm infection. Pinworms are small, thin, white worms that infect the intestines. At night, these worms enter your child's anus and lay tiny eggs around it. Sometimes you can see the pinworms in stools in the toilet. If you cannot see pinworms in the stools, but suspect your child has pinworms try looking at the child's anus. You can do this with a torch in the late evening after the child has gone to sleep.
